The young lions spent an hour and a half taking down the beast, clawing and biting at its back as a unit.

One of the young lions was so unlucky and was caught on the horn of the cape bull buffalo as it leapt onto the animal, while it was grazing in long grass, in the Mala Mala Game Reserve in South Africa.

Joined by four other members of its pride the lion pounced on the beast and despite the fact they clawed, gouged and sank their teeth in together - it took them an incredible hour and a half to finally take the buffalo down.

Mr Ravenhill, who was about 20 metres away for the entire attack, said: 'There was a fight going on between the cape buffalo bull and a pride of lions and we could see them leaping upon it.

'Suddenly we could see that a young male had managed to get hooked by the buffalo's horn underneath his left front leg. He ended up stuck there for a good 20 minutes. 

'After that time, he managed to get unhooked, but was limping for days afterwards we noticed.


'By a long way, it was the longest battle we have ever seen between lions and a buffalo - it was hard to watch, but that is the reality of nature.'
