Watch lone porcupine show 7 lions who is king of the jungle

Seven male lions figured they had an easy meal after cornering their prey under darkness of night in the famed Kruger National Park in South Africa, but they soon discovered they underestimated their target.

The prey, a lone porcupine, wound up showing the lions who the real king of the jungle is, at least in this case.

Hennie Bekker, a director at Private Kruger Safaris, captured the encounter on video and shared what happened with LatestSightings.com.

From Lower Sabie, the safari headed southeast and spotted a jackal hanging around close to the vehicle. Then they heard a rattling sound.

“We looked around to see where the sounds were coming from and noticed seven young lions trying to corner a porcupine,” Bekker said.

“I was very eager to see what was going on as I have spent a lot of time in the Kruger Park and rarely ever encountered a porcupine so to see the lions interacting with the porcupine was definitely exciting.

“It was astounding to see how all these lions were unable to get the upper hand on the porcupine, as the porcupine cleverly kept his back towards them at all times. After a few good minutes, the lions gave up as they realized they were not getting anywhere and the game was over.”
