A Stallions Duel

Category: Nature

The Ngorongoro Crater is home to many migratory and resident mammals including lion and zebra. This particular herd of zebra were trotting around our vehicle while the stallion was busy fighting off another competitive male. Biting, kicking and totally distracted, they ran right into a pride of seven lion. Lucky for the stallions strength and determination, he was able to save himself and the herd from becoming breakfast.

Location: Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tanzania
