[Not For Sensitive Viewers] The Warthog Never Heard (or saw) The Lions Coming
*WARNING* The video in this article depicts predators hunting then killing prey, if you are of a sensitive nature, then do not watch.
Some safari goers in Africa sure got their monies-worth and got an eye full on this particular trip. A warthog had no chance, when the pride of lions came sneaking in behind it and because of that one mistake, the creature ended-up paying for that mistake with it’s life. When it comes to hunting, lions are experts at stealth , even though this attack was in broad daylight, you can see for yourself what happens.
Warthogs, as one might guess from the name, are members of the Swine family and are related to pigs, boars and hogs. And as the name also suggests, warthogs have patches on their faces that look like warts, but are just thick growths of skin. These patches act as padding for when males fight during mating season.
African lions (on the other hand) eat large animals that they find in the grasslands, including antelopes, zebras and wildebeest. Asiatic lions eat large animals as well, such as goats, nilgai, chital, sambhar and buffaloes. They are also known to eat smaller animals…like the un-lucky warthog in the video below.
