What looked like an easy meal turned into a headache for one lion.

A female lion attempted to hunt a hippo basking in the sun at Maasai Mara in Kenya recently. Perhaps the lion thought the hippo was injured or sleeping. It was most certainly not.

After noticing the lion, the hippo immediately gets up. The lion trots off like it’s no big deal, but the hippo shows that it’s not to be messed with.

Thankfully for the lion, she got off with just a warning this time.
