A Safari Surprise

Lions are some of the most fearsome creatures in the animal kingdom, and for good reason. These predators can easily outrun and outsmart their prey, making them the perfect killing machines.

The lioness noticed the injured fox on a dirt road. The poor fox was absolutely terrified and froze in fear.
