Lion breakfast!!

By Pieter on December 12, 2008

After tracking the two male lions at short distance into the bush, we got pleasantly surprised by what we got to see next…

As we were watching the two big male lions standing about 5 meters away from our vehicle, the one male suddenly jumped into a warthog burrow! Suddenly we heard loud squealing coming from the burrow.

We sat and watched as the male drag the female warthog out and suffocate her. The other male immediately started feeding on the hind quarters before his brother could seize the kill for himself.
