It might be time to re-evaluate the king of the jungle. This video, shot in Zambia, shows a young elephant being attacked by a pride of 14 lions. While everything you’ve seen in most nature shows and movies would make you think this elephant became Simba’s Sunday brunch, it ends up shaking off its would-be predators and escaping.
The lions employed the one-at-a-time technique used by henchmen in James Bond films, thus decreasing their chances of taking down their prey, but this tough little pachyderm gets in a couple of kicks and even chases some of the lions away at one point.
This video should give Disney enough fodder to create an action-packed Dumbo/Lion King crossover sequel.
