Turtle Chases Lions From His Waterhole

A small yet fearless turtle swam up to a lion in some incredible footage captured on safari.

The rare footage was captured by Reggi Barreto, a safari guidein the Mala Mala Game Reserve in South Africa.

“It was an incredibly rare sighting for me to film – watching the terrapin approach the lions that had blood on their chins from the zebra,” Reggi told LatestSightings.com. “Is all about understanding animal behaviour and predicting what they will do next. It requires plenty of patience searching for animals and spending time with them to see how the sighting will pan out!”
