The African lion may be the king of beasts, but this fearless little turtle does not show respect. The little creatures are not impressed or afraid of a pair of lions who dare to drink water from the drinking fountain. Now in a viral image, the brave turtle tells the lion who is responsible there.
The drama took place in South Africa’s Malamara Private Game Reserve, where a pair of thirsty lions (one male and one female) approached the drinking fountain. But she soon found out that they weren’t welcomed … a difficult way. The turtle, one of the inhabitants of the basin, was driven away by an epic way.
Despite the fact that the two lions were thousands of times larger, they had to think twice when they encountered the extremely brave tortoise. The child’s persistence finally paid off, but then the lion quenched his thirst. This scene surprised everyone, including Barreto. “It was an incredibly rare sight for me,” he said.
