This video is the most amazing animal video I've ever seen, showing a battle between a pride of lions trying to eat a buffalo, two crocodiles who try to steal the buffalo and the herd of buffalo who rescue the young buffalo and run off the lions.

@Robert Gentel,
Yeah.
This demonstrates the great, intense value of counterattack,
rather than to flee the scene with a faster predator chasing u.

In such a situation,
one 's life depends upon degrading the predator 's offensive capability
( by killing the predator, for example ).

The same principles of life-saving self defense
apply against human predators.

@Robert Gentel,
We found that a while ago (I think there was an article about it in the New York Times), amazing. We watched it about 5 times in a row.

@Robert Gentel,
Here's another similar video. Not nearly as exciting but in this one a buffalo calf spends over 10 minutes with a pride of lions trying to eat it, and the mother comes and scares them off to take the calf with her.

RG, That is just an amazing film. I've been to Africa twice on safari, and never saw anything close to that event. The closest we got to that was when we were in Zimbabwe on a night safari, and we saw a pride of lions following a group of rhinos to the water, but nothing happened. Thanks for sharing that with us on a2k.

Oh my.

I wonder if the calves were ok after all that?


I have seen film of buffalo attacking and running off a pride of lions, just because they could...the lions were not attacking at the time.

The buffalo managed to kill all the cubs with the pride.
