20 Times Lions Messed With The Wrong OpponentJul 01, 2023
Lions think they're so awesome that all that talk about the king of the jungle has really gone to their heads, hasn't it? Some
timesthey get too big for their boots and go around picking fights just because they think they're so cool. It doesn't always work in their favor and there are some feisty little upstarts waiting to take them down a few pegs from a honey badger, reminding us why they're totally crazy about a little turtle with huge balls. There are 20
opponentnumber 20 the giraffe kicks the lion to defend itself looking at a long-legged giraffe, you would be forgiven for thinking that this extraordinary creature, although beautiful, is not one of the best equipped, but look again, there are many animals in the African savanna that want to catch and eat giraffes, they are very tasty and also make a great meal, so the spindly giraffe has had to develop a particularly effective technique to protect itself and its young do not have pointed tusks, antlers or claws, so how do they do it?
His secret weapon is in his long legs. They have such a powerful kick that they will actually turn into a Predator if they set foot in the right place. This is why many Savannah predators do not choose the giraffe for dinner unless they are very inexperienced or if there is no easier catch available most of the time a giraffe may simply outrun another animal so that is their first line of defense and they also have great vision, so even if a predator thinks they will try their luck, the giraffe will likely spot them and pounce before they can get close.
If a creature tries to take down a giraffe, they really run the risk of taking a proper hit and that could even kill them. The giraffe should probably come with her. a warning label before continuing like this video, hit the subscribe button and click the notification bell right now or this centipede will crawl on your face when you're sleeping. Now it's time for the fancy theme. Here we have a recreation of a scene that was supposedly witnessed by a guy once, but you know what they say about believing everything you see on the Internet, this image shows an encounter between a very grumpy elephant and a particularly unlucky lion and soon deceased, while they fight face to face or in this case, tusk to the neck, the result is a bloody, kebab-like spectacle, not only do I hope that the elephant is able to shake off the lion's carcass, otherwise, drag that old Deadlifts will probably uninvite you from all those social events pretty quickly.
Think about all this carnage, as always, let me know your opinion in the comments section below using #elegant topic number 19. The honey badger lives up to his Brave reputation and fights six
lionsat the same time. Now everyone knows that honey badgers are psychopaths. That goes without saying, but did you know that these Nutters are also basically completely fearless? They are in possession of some of the toughest and most robust hides in the animal kingdom and are notoriously difficult for even the sharpest-toothed predator to defeat. there they are almost bulletproof and can certainly deflect arrows, spears and machetes, so animal bites mean nothing to them and a silly little snake is no problem for these savages, even if they get bitten it wouldn't do any It makes a difference to these animals because they have an adaptation that means they are not vulnerable to venom and they have defenses against the neurotoxins that are present in snake bites, so a bite from a snake or even a whole venomous reptile for dinner doesn't cost them much. no risk, in fact up to 25% of the honey badgers diet is made up of delicious M snakes, so with the bulletproof skin, complete lack of genius over deadly snakes and general lack of enthusiasm Whatever it is, it's no wonder our old clipboard clings to our friends at the Guinness Book.
World Records have deemed the honey badger to be the most fearless creature in the world, so seeing it take on a gang of deadly predators should come as no surprise as these creatures don't get angry at all and have all the time in the world. to prove. after all, they are quite tough and quite indestructible even for a large load of
lionsnumber 18. African buffalo versus African lion. The African buffaloes have this defense strategy as they are constantly on the Lion's radar during lunch, so they have had to develop something. Crazy skills to repel lion attacks, let's see what they can do.
The large size of a buffalo is its greatest weapon. They can use their enormous weight and big old horns to deadly effect when encountering a lion. The African buffalo can weigh up to 1,900 pounds. and they can be up to 11 feet long, they go in massive packs and travel together which makes things safer and they are amazing swimmers so this is one of the ways they can avoid even coming into contact with a water-averse lion, one of its best Lion prevention techniques are white birds that often travel on the backs of buffaloes. Oxpeckers, they eat insects that like to live on a buffalo, but they are also like an early warning system for an imminent attack by a big cat.
They hiss whenever a lion is nearby. so these are the ways you can avoid a lion completely but how deadly is the buffalo. Well, these guys don't bother if they come across a pride of sleeping lazy lions, they just charge at them, this will actually hurt or even hurt them. those who get caught under the stampede of the herd or scatter the rest causing chaos and confusion, so the buffalo's motto is surely offense is the best defense and I sure wouldn't want to offend one of these big guys number 17, hippo against lion, let him sleep. Hippos lie, that's the message here, I think, and if you must bother one, you should keep your distance.
A lionist stalking the MSI Mara National Reserve in Kenya would see a hippo lying in the grass and I guess that lion thought a resting hippo was easy. enough prey or at least not much of a threat if he was going to take a look, but boy, was he
wrong? The huge hippopotamus quickly became alert to the lion's probing and turned around grabbing the lion's head with its powerful jaws. It's not a place to put your The head actually has giant teeth and a hippo's jaws are so powerful that they can literally crush bones or even splinter a wooden boat in half.
This lioness was lucky enough to be able to free herself from the hippo's grip with her head still attached to his body. but I imagine he learned a pretty important lesson and will probably refrain from poking any more hippos any time soon. It will give these beasts a wide birth number: 16 lions versus tortoises. Sometimes nature is really very strange, although you probably imagine it. A confrontation between a big bad lion and a tiny turtle would probably end in exactly one way. You'd be wrong here for a lovely couple of minutes of footage taken at the private Malam Mala game reserve within Krueger National Park in South Africa.
A surprising interaction would be captured, as we have seen before, going to the watering hole is a very risky business. This is a prime hunting ground where predators lie and wait for easy prey to be at their most vulnerable, but it is usually the lions who threaten. instead of a tiny little upstart with a territorial dispute, but here we are, this little turtle doesn't have any of these big cats drooling in his home and then he takes matters into his own hands, the turtle takes on the drinking lions and strongly advises them to go somewhere else when they continue drinking drinks and not paying attention, they get a severe bite on the tongue, okay, so this turtle is unlikely to fight a lion to the death, but you have to admire his number balls 15, dramatic moment, Fearless.
The young male elephant scares away a PR of lions that patrol a waterhole in South Africa with all their years of experience and can live up to an average of 65 years. Older elephants have a few tricks up their sleeves. Lions are capable of doing. Elephants the size of a male lion means that even a single lion has the power to take down an elephant, although lions usually work within a group to hunt one. Lions generally capture elephants and younger females because they tend to be smaller and therefore easier to fight with. They conducted some experiments to see how the elephants responded to the lions.
They played recordings of lions roaring and the older female elephants reacted first and the rest of the herd approached the older females who were 60 or older, recognized and responded more quickly to the lions. The roar of the male lion, their lifelong experience had taught them to recognize different dangers by slightly different sounds from AAR. Elephants are the strongest of all land animals and not many can survive their tree strength, even a lion can be defeated by a stampeding elephant, but it seems that the elephant's best defense is to use their brain power working together to protect the entire pack.
The experience of elephants can literally save their lives. So it is true that an elephant never forgets. Heavily pregnant rhino number 14 fights off a pride of hungry lions after getting trapped in a waterhole, you know how it goes, you've been bathing at the local waterhole when a group of rolling lions appear and start threatening to eat you, not now They respect your privacy and just wait for you to get out of the water, they don't offer you a towel or anything, everything is so bored by the threats of their idols that eventually you resign yourself to that being the end of your relaxing soap, these Lions begin to try it.
Seriously, I mean, haven't they seen your epic painting? So three against one it seems like the Lions probably have this one in the bag though, they try but the Rhino has tough skin up to a couple of inches thick even and she is also huge and powerful with a very pointy horn and when the mighty rhinoceros is out of the water and on equal terms with the lions, he simply deceives them; in fact he just chases them in a couple of small circles and leaves the big cats bewildered in the dust it's amazing to watch and that incredible creature barely breaks a sweat number 13 A fearless stray dog fights with a lioness whether this little dog is fearless or foolish is under debate starting a fight with a pair of lionesses does not seem the most He is aware of the options available, but this stray dog while wandering through the G National Forest decided to confront this pair of otic lions.
It can't end well, one would surely say, but as it happens, fortune favors the brave, in this case fortune is not eaten. by the lion, but this tough little dog surprises the Indian forest service with his brave antagonism towards the lionist, he barks and bites the lion and, although the big cat is much bigger and stronger, he does not make the Dog run to save his life when people started seeing these crazy images and many of them were quick to point out that this was an example of how stray dogs can spread diseases among the wild animal population.
Some are particularly nasty and can cause serious problems for big cats in particular. although it seems like the little dog gets away with being really naughty maybe the lions just knew better and it's probably not worth fighting 11 when lions attack porcupines humans suffer unexpected consequences now how does a rodent defend itself weighs around 40 lbs or even killing a large powerful cat that weighs 400 lbs it seems like there is no way this could happen on paper the lion has all the strength, speed and size but the rodent in question It's a porcupine and these little prickly creatures will have a unique shape. and sometimes a deadly weapon at their disposal, you would think that lions would have stopped trying to eat porcupines by now because it rarely ends well for them.
Porcupines, as you probably know, are covered in very sharp quills, these prickly sticks can pierce a persistent lion who does so. It sounds uncomfortable, but these sharp pokers can actually cause fatal injuries. If one punctures the lion's heart or even a major artery, that cat will literally bleed to death and the porcupine will probably just trot away minus a feather or two, that spear of instant death it is not. The only way an encounter with a porcupine can end in big trouble for a lion, scientists have discovered that lions that have porcupine quills attached can suffer long-term problems and may find them difficult to hunt depending on where the quills are. barbs.
They are housed and this can make them more likely to attack a human or livestock, which usually means death for the lion. A man-eating lion that was killed in 1965 had a feather ofporcupine stuck to its nose, alas, the lion had not been able to hunt and its sense of smell was damaged, so it killed a human and that was the end of its death by a thousand blows or even just one well-placed quill number 10. The lions attack the crocodile while it walks on the land. This is a battle of teeth. The proportions of two of the deadliest creatures coming face to face create a dangerous combination, so if the crocodile has the most powerful jaws of all animals but the lion is the king of that same kingdom, then who win?
Lions usually hunt in groups. so this would give them a significant advantage over the less mobile crocodile, but if that fight were one on one, well a battle between a lion and a crocodile could go either way, the crocodile is a fearsome creature if it has the first bite. and you can get it. A lion's grip, his incredibly powerful bite could hold on tightly, allowing the strong crocodile to drag the line into the water and drown it. Oh, that's brutal! The crocodile also has a certain element of surprise in its favor and can also hide in shallow waters. and then suddenly emerges to grab a passing animal, of course the lion has many dangerous abilities that make him a deadly
opponentin a battle with a big old Croc.
The lions are more agile and can jump on the crocodile before the Croc. power takes drastic action with its deadly jaws, well that's when the lion can get the upper hand, it's all a matter of who gets the first bite in this match, first bite and last laugh number nine, two lions take on an orex . Orex are a type of long horns. antelope so you know where it goes, although the orex is often hunted by the lion, these antelopes have developed some techniques to defend themselves from attacks by big cats. Lions will pounce on the backs of most of their prey and this is how they prefer to approach the extremely spiky orex and you can see why because the front of this creature is clearly more dangerous so if a lion working in a group place an orex and manage to keep it there, then it's game over, it's an orex for tea, but if that orex can stand upright and put those antlers into play, while the lion needs to take a serious look at it.
Add to the mix that ores prowl in massive herds of 300 or more and they would just need to be a little more organized and a little less easy going. scared and could make life really difficult for a lion. The orc's horns can be deadly weapons and they have killed lions with them before. The simitar orex is also sometimes known as the sable. Antelope and these horns can be as deadly as a sword. Is incredible. That lions haven't met their doom more often and been impaled like skewers on the heads of a number eight orx python teaches the lion cubs a lesson.
Most lions leave snakes alone because they know they are dangerous and not worth wasting their time. However, it seems that this curious lion cub must have fallen asleep in class during that particular lesson. However, the python is more than happy to offer a quick recovery session while the pup pushes the snake away, pulls it away, and then lunges at the big cat. face sinking her sharp teeth into the lion cub she soon learns that snakes are not toys and then leaves her alone, she is also lucky, the python lets her go, although you could imagine that she had been hungry, this snake could have taken her breath easily. cat and swallowed it whole, they can eat goats antelope and crocodiles and frankly this little lion isn't much bigger than any of them so he got away with one bite and a lesson learned: leopard number seven vs. the lion, who would win in a fight, although leopards and lions are big cats, lions are generally larger, stronger and with the benefit of living and working in a pride, the leopard, however, does not seem to have much to fear from a lion, they are often hunted by them. although the worst thing that is known to happen, and it happens often, is that a leopard puts in all the effort of hunting and eating only for a group of lazy lions to come in and attack it.
That's right, lions laze around all day and can't even be bothered to catch their own dinner, they simply wait until the leopard has done all the work and then relieve them of their efforts. This could be why leopards are such efficient climbers and are known to carry their prey up a tree to stay safe. It is out of reach of other animals, including lions and hyenas that search for food, giving the leopard an advantage over their big cats. Their rivals are extremely stealthy in style, they are nocturnal and generally hunt at night, so when that is combined with their ability to camouflage themselves and crawl around without being noticed at all, it makes them quite a difficult opponent, as usual, although the lion has the advantage of roaming in a large group and that is enough to deter all but the most reckless leopards, meow number six lion versus tiger in claw to claw combat the tiger is a formidable opponent, there are many recorded victories of the tiger against the supposed king of the jungle and in ancient Rome the two big cats were often placed in one-on-one fights to the death, art depicting the The fights usually showed the tiger as the victor and, in more contemporary confrontations, the Tiger still seems to have the deadliest moves, while the tiger and lion seem pretty well matched in terms of teeth and speed, as well as overall size. powerful and muscular animal, so in a fight against a single lion, the tiger definitely got the upper paw.
In 2011, at the Anara Zoo in Turkey, a tiger found its way into the lion's enclosure and witnessed a lion with a single merciless and efficient strike of the paw, the tiger, managed to sever the lion's jugular vein and with a swing of his super sharp claws was brutal, but since tigers, like many of the other big cats, are generally solitary, the lion again has the advantage of his group mentality, these guys sure know it. there is strength in numbers and they will use it to the maximum number five zebra kills lion it is not often that a zebra can escape a lion's attack, but once in a while a zebra can land that perfect kick and beat a hasty retreat, that It's just how this zebra fought off a huge lion and came out relatively unscathed, it's like every scene of lions attacking a zebra you've witnessed before.
I mean, we mostly know how this little fight will end, a deadly bite followed by some throat ripping all over before the inevitable images of zebra chunks and bloodstained lions looking pleased with themselves but this zebra had seen that movie too many times and he wasn't in the mood to become the local pride party's messy lunch at one scary moment. The lion had grabbed the zebra and it seemed like a done deal, but then the squirming zebra shook the lion loose and delivered an almighty double blow to the lion's face. Surprise to add insult to injury, the stunned lion quickly landed in a puddle of mud.
The zebra then carried him out of there with a hoof. Now I don't know if the zebra could really deliver a kick that would kill a lion, but this lion certainly died a bit of a social death and went home with his tail between his legs number four. When the Beast attacks a Lion on his horn and throws him into a one on one fight, the Beast has a couple of tricks for throwing at a lion, don't dismiss the Beast, a lion has a Beast next to his throat on the ground and you'd think it was all over, except suddenly the huge W-shouldered Beast stands up again.
This is really the key to keeping this battle standing tall. Although the lion is powerful, the big cat really needs to use his strength to drive his prey to the ground and maintain the upper hand in the situation. Once a wild beast manages to get rid of a lion and hold its ground, it changes everything. The beast has huge pointed horns and can use its weight against the lion if the Beast's will attacks. towards the lion, then he should run away, run away quickly because being impaled on the horns of a wild beast is going to be quite uncomfortable, to say the least.
Number three, can an ostrich kill a lion? Now, this is a big bird. Ostriches are actually the largest birds on the planet. an adult male can weigh up to 330 pounds and stand up to 9 feet tall and, interestingly, has only two toes on each foot and boasts the largest eyeballs of any land creature, a dazzling, billowing eyelash 2 inches wide, better. To see you with my dear, the large-bodied ostrich is too heavy to fly and these birds have developed muscular legs to be extremely fast on land. They can run short distances at a top speed of about 43 mph or longer distances at 30 mph.
This is one of the ways the ostrich continues to thrive in such massive numbers that they can mostly outrun their predators and hanging out in a gang provides even more protection, although safety and numbers and all that, ah, and they have a super cool secret weapon. It has no teeth, but what makes the ostrich deadly is not in its mouth, a single kick from an ostrich is so powerful that it can even kill a lion, perhaps they are the Bruce Lee of Savannah, the number two gorilla against the lion, gorillas and lions would be the most likely to never be found in the wild.
Gorillas live in the mountainous areas of Africa, while lions live predominantly in the savannah grasslands, but if you want to know which of the two most powerful creatures would win in a hand-to-hand combat. we could take a look at how that might happen. Silverback gorillas are super intimidating. Adult males can stand 6 feet tall and weigh up to 500 pounds and are not to be
messedwith, although these guys are actually vegetarians, not that. It doesn't mean they can't snap an opponent like a twig, it just means they aren't really interested in eating them afterwards, although the lion kills to eat which makes him a different type of opponent weighing around the Al Just like a silverback gorilla, an African lion is pretty even.
If a lion used its stealth to attack a gorilla, it would definitely have the advantage, but if the gorilla was aware of the lion, then it would have much more stamina and would eventually wear down. takes out the attacking lion, so there's not much to it, really the gorilla's powerful strength might tilt it in your favor, but the lion has all the hunting moves. I'll leave it up to you to decide the number one boar against the lions, wart though. Pigs are not usually aggressive towards larger, scarier animals, they will definitely fight back if cornered by a lion.
The warty pig is well equipped to defend itself and these wild pigs have longer legs than any other type of pig and are very fast when necessary. The wild boar is especially good at escaping a sticky situation with its deaf and skillful evasion techniques. In fact, it can run in circles around a predator. Although they are quite small, they are fast and agile, and this is a huge advantage in a fight if you are under attack. The fighting warty pig is the proud owner of huge fangs and is not afraid to use them. These fangs can inflict serious damage, especially to a lion who, although a fearsome predator, can easily be injured by these colossal fangs. tusks are simply too big teeth and impaling the enormous tusk of a wild boar defending its babies could mean death for any creature, even the scary old king of the jungle, well that's all today in the violent world of the lions and their enemies, which of these encounters surprised you? you, let me know all your thoughts in the comments below, be sure to check out the other cool stuff that pops up on the screen and I'll see you next time.
I love you.
