MMEGI (Gaborone, Botswana) 17 January 11 Lions tell okavango croc: don't touch my baby
Don't touch my baby! These pictures by a tourist at Botswana's wilderness captured incredible moment three lionesses killed a crocodile after it tried to attack a cub
The extraordinary encounter took place in Botswana and was captured on camera by a touring cardiologist Tony Goldman. The story and pictures first appeared on the British tabloid, Daily Mail, Friday.
The three lionesses pounced on a crocodile in an extraordinary scene after the reptile tried to attack one of the pride's cubs.The protective females instinctively leapt into action to fend off the aggressive predator. With organised precision, the lionesses surrounded the crocodile and launched a ferocious volley of blows.
The whole thing lasted about 15 minutes and was only witnessed by my son, our driver and myself. "We were really lucky because the driver had driven like a maniac to get there in time after we heard about the buffalo kill."
Father of two, Tony, from Benoni, near Johannesburg, South Africa, added: "On my subsequent safaris I've mentioned this experience to rangers with more than 20 years in the bush and no one has ever seen lions take down a crocodile. "It is most certainly a very rare wildlife occurrence that we were lucky enough to see and photograph.'
