One of the oldest battles that exist in the Natural World sees the King of the Jungle take on an old adversary. For a single lion it is almost impossible to bring down a buffalo alone, although it has been done! For lions to successfully catch a buffalo, speed, endurance and strength as well as the co-operation of the pride is needed; however hunts are more often than not unsuccessful. Buffaloes are not easy targets, with herds that number in their hundreds and males reaching over one tonne, the task of bringing down Africa's largest bovine often ends in failure and can even lead to death.
