Zebra almost drowns lion

Zebra4NB_350x211A lion almost bit off more than he could chew when he attacked a zebra.

This is the moment when the hunted turned the tables on the hunter - and won. A seemingly doomed zebra, in the vice-like grip of a lioness's jaws, refuses to lie down and die.

Instead the animal, caught by the predator in a shallow river, struggles to lower the lioness's head towards the an attempt to drown the attacker.

Only when the partly-submerged lioness is starved of air does it release its grip and give the zebra a momentary chance of escape.
