This is the coolest! Wildlife photographers put a camera on a remote control car and drove it into a pride of lions. The lions broke the car — no surprise there — but the resulting pictures are very cool. And for some reason watching the lions react to the car cracked me up.
A natural history observation … the lion that approaches from the left looks a bit emaciated, with ribs showing. If you look closely, you’ll also notice that her right eye is completely clouded. Probably either old or injured, and not getting a full share of the food. I would imagine that the loss of depth perception would be a serious disability for a lion. And one of the lions in the back has a horrible looking gash/scar on her right hip, probably an old wound. Life as a predator is not all peaches and cream, maybe.
