With experience and sharp spines, the porcupine alone is still able to “fight” and defeat the lions that are much different in number. Interesting wildlife world moment captured in Amakhala reserve, South Africa.
At that time, a large hedgehog was wandering by the river bank and suddenly encountered a herd of lions. Immediately, the predators surrounded the hedgehog and tried to attack. However, things are not that simple.
With experience and a sharp back, the hedgehog is alone, but still able to “fight” and defeat the whole herd, which is much different in number.
In the wild, adult porcupines are also the target of lion attacks. But this rodent always knows how to defend itself. It will erect spikes and a long, spiky tail toward its enemies, ready to injure or even kill lions.
After a few minutes of trying, it seemed that the enemy was “difficult”, so the group accepted to leave and continued their hunt. And the hedgehog has shown that, although alone, the lion is not always “the lord”.
