As a lioness was getting ready to devour her meal in Zimbabwe, an African wild dog found the perfect way to escape.
Animals are far from stupid animals, and the video at the top of this article is proof of just that. The footage which you will find was filmed in Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe and in the video, you will see a lioness with an African wild dog in her mouth.
Although African wild dogs are very dangerous for other animals like wildebeest, when they are alone, there is no way that they could compete with a King or Queen of the Jungle.
A true performer
When you don’t have the strength, speed or the ferocity to compete with your opponent, cunning can be your saving grace, and the African wild dog in this video knew just how to use his. He decided to patiently wait and accept the pain, going for a risky strategy that did, however, end up paying off: playing dead.
So when the lioness finally releases him so she could get back to her hunt, the dog managed to escape and flee the scene. A very good, strategy as it seems, which allowed the African wild dog to live another day in the Hwange National Park.
