For all of you Lion King Fans out there, this video is a must see.
I often find myself playing imaginative wildlife games:
Who would win? A hawk or an eagle? A great white shark or an orca whale?
A leopard or a… warthog?
A piece of cake, right?
So you would think…
Substitute some offspring into the equation and all bets are void.
In the video we see a big old leopard chasing a piglet in the grasslands. The leopard takes the piglet in its mouth and it looks like it’s game over for the poor little pig when the pig mama appears just in time.
Mamma Hog runs full force towards the leopard and the leopard has no choice but to drop the piglet and get out of there or turn into a cat spear.
The video pans and the leopard reappears… and Mama Hog hasn’t. She doubles in full force and charges towards the leopard.
The leopard weighs their options and decides they’d rather not be fed pig horn kabobs. The piglet is then dropped a second time and the mother pig plows into the bush behind the leopard.
It didn’t look like she was going to stop anytime soon, either.
One can only wonder how the scene ended; I don’t think so for the cat.
Reminds me of the scene in The Lion King where a hyena calls Pumba a pig.
who is the pig
Are you talking to me?
Are you talking to me?!”
You name my MISTER PIG!”
Pumba then attacks, sending the hyenas running.
Hakauna Matata? I do not think so.
