Bye, Bye Mr. Wildebeest Guy

One thing that happens when you go on safari is that you see incredible animals. You expect to catch them doing normal things like sleeping and walking around a little. They'll be grazing if they're herbivores. They'll be pooping.

They won't be hunting.

Hunting is one of those things that you see on National Geographic specials, not in real life. Sure, lions have to eat, but you have to wait around for days to see them do it.

Well, someone I was traveling with must've had a gold-plated horseshoe up the rear, since we were crazy lucky and were able to see two lions hunt and kill a wildebeest.

The slideshow below stars these two lovely ladies:

And an unfortunate soul who looked a lot like this:

The video is a photo-animation thing with a few captions so you can tell what's going on.

Josh, I love your blog! It entertains, informs, and cracks me up. I made it just so far with the "Bye, Bye Mr. Wildebeest Guy" photo animation... you understand. The same reason I change the channel at just that moment during nature shows. The same reason I got help for an injured puffer fish in Destin - seriously. Looks like you had an amazing trip!
