Buffalo sends young lion flying into air to protect a lizard

A young lion that emerged from the reeds with a water monitor lizard was soon sent flying through the air doing somersaults courtesy of a buffalo apparently intent on protecting the lizard.

The encounter at the famous Kruger National Park in South Africa was captured on video by a park regular, Sune Eloff, who was out for a drive just west of Lower Sabie.

“Some buffalo in the vicinity had noticed that the lion had captured a lizard and one of them came storming in as if he knew this lizard needed protecting,” Eloff told Latestsightings.com.

“To our absolute astonishment, the buffalo proceeded to get his head right under the puzzled lion and somersault him through the air. It was crazy!”

The young lion landed on his feet and quickly scampered away.

“I have never seen anything like this in my life and I’ve been a Kruger visitor since the age of 2,” the 32-year-old Eloff told Latestsightings.com. “Definitely a first for me!”

There was no word on the condition of the lizard.
