Watch your back in Africa!

24 Feb

Is that a buck under those trees?

It is actually very scary as to what people get up to when there are dangerous animals that could in a flash change your entire outlook on life!

In Africa most animals or reptiles out in the open areas are very capable of terminating your existance here on earth without having to raise to much effort. The lion could leap onto its paws and take one leap right onto the roof of the Land Cruiser. The tourist would in that time not even be able to get his legs into the sun roof!

The other two tourists who are standing in the vehicle would not even have time to turn around to see the danger. One swipe from the lions deadly paw could easily break a humans scrawney neck as well as removing most of their face in the same motion. If the lion ended up inside the vehicle, the driver sitting there all casually would not have the time to reach for a firearm much less being able to use it.

So if you come to Africa – dont do stupid things like this. You (or what is left of you) could end up going back home in the cargo hold in a wooden box.

 

Published this one of a photographer and leopard doing stupid things as well the other day.

      If the lion had a sense of humour it would leap up and let out a mighty roar!! Then just lie down again watching the people trying to untangle themselves 🙂 Appeals to my warped sense of humour!!

    People can be soooo stupid sometimes!!
    We were talking about a video taken and the lion stormed the car and stuck his head right in there!!
    The car I mean 😉
    Don’t screw with things you know nothing of…

      If a lion stuck it’s head in my car window you would never get the seats clean!!
      Seen people get out their cars to go stand close to a herd of elephants. Unluckily nothing happened or I could have had some great photo’s!!

    Apart from everything else, don’t you just love their powers of observation?

    I hope the photographer was safely encased by motorcar!

    Hi Paul, I like your photo of the man with his back to the lion. Can we use it? Please contact me. Thanks. Vee

      There is currently no copyright on it but I dont know the information of the man doing the stupid thing of not knowing what is going on behind him. So as long as the picture isnt used in any derogative way I cant see any harm in using it.
