Lions are known to be one of the most fierce creatures not only in the jungle but in the animal kingdom in general. Their perfect blend of speed, strength and raw power provides them with the ability to capture any prey they set their mind to, making them almost invincible.
It was because of this, that when photographer Dyer Graham stumbled upon a lioness and her family engaging with an injured baby fox, that he thought the worst. However, the strange situation soon took an even stranger turn.
noticed the injured baby fox, it appeared that he had captivated the interest of a Lion pride as a decent evening meal.
The entire family, beginning with the lioness, then her cubs and then her alpha male quickly began to inspect the fox, which seemed to be crying out in pain.
However, when the male started to move in for the kill…….
…….the lioness mother made it obvious that she would NOT allow any harm to come to her newest cub.
She moved in with a fierce quickness, to tell her husband she was not to be reckoned with.
While he wasn’t too happy about it, he moved along.
She went back to loving on her babies, which appeared to include the fox.
The fox continued to stay by her side until he sat up, seemingly better from his injuries, and then scampered off into the jungle.
