The encounters between lions and buffalos are often fierce and unpredictable, because each side possesses weapons that make the opponent wary.
In many cases, lions thought they had won a “fatty” meal, but lost it at the last minute before the resilience and teammates of the buffalo.
Here is a video that captures the wild buffalo’s spectacular escape when it has to fight not only 1, but 4 adult lions.
It can be seen in the video that, despite fighting fiercely in the midst of the lions’ siege, the buffalo quickly surrendered and fell to the ground.
Those who witnessed it probably thought of a bad prospect for the poor animal, and the lions were overjoyed at this.
However, an unexpected thing happened, the buffaloes heard their fellows begging for help and the appearance of the buffalo caused the lions to flee for their lives.
As a result, the head-butt of a buffalo scared the lions and immediately retreated.
Taking advantage of the “thousand-golden” opportunity, the buffalo used the last bit of strength left, tried to stand up, and ran away towards its herd.
