WHO'S THE REAL KING OF THE JUNGLE??? ... ... Looks like it's the lions after all. I never thought this possible. Bad strategy by the elephant IMO.

Looks like it's the lions after all. Not when it takes 30 lions to kill one baby elephant. If 30 African wild dogs can kill a young lion, nobody will say that african wild dogs are the kings of the jungle

Apparently its only one pride that does it. They were starving due to the dry season and once they realised they could take down elephants they got a taste for it. There's a video of them attacking a full grown female but she gets way. Its always at night cause the elephants cant see as well.

That had to be brutal. There is no way the elephant died before it was well into being eaten

From a BBC article: "What follows is not for the squeamish. The elephant takes a further 30 minutes to expire. The death agony is not pretty. The lions chew through tough hide and clamp their jaws round the elephant's trunk in an attempt to stop it breathing. The sound of the animal's gargling, wheezing and hissing is sickening and the lions provide a chilling accompaniment of low, contented growling. It is a hellish scene, all the more so for the faint red glow cast by the infra-red cameras." Then it goes on to say the edit a lot of the footage for tv so it's not overly graphic. And apparently the lions are now hunting every night.

They should have gone after a full grown horny adult male African bull=30 dead lions. The survivors may not be able to walk properly.

I remember a discovery show that claimed saber-tooth tigers developed their sabers in order to prey upon mammoths - such long fangs allowed them to penetrate the throats and quickly kill them once they were on the ground. It would be amazing if this pride was able to outcompete all other prides due to their elephant eating and slowly evolved longer and longer fangs until the emergence of a new species: the elephant- eating saber-tooth lion (of death).

"the elephant- eating saber-tooth lion (of death" They will certainly be able to kill the young or very weak, but against a full grown bull, they are babies.

"They will certainly be able to kill the young or very weak, but against a full grown bull, they are babies." True, but it was probably the same way for saber tooth tigers and mammoths.

Been posted here a few times before. To fill out the rest of the story, IIRC, there was a drought & pretty much everything for miles around was sharing one water hole. Once the lions ran out of smaller prey to eat, they were forced to attack what was left. The baby got seperated from the herd in the confusion, & was attacked. In an evolutionary scale, for this pride to outcompete the rest of the lion kingdom would require the drought condition to expand across the entire lion range, which isn't likely, & for the other lions to not learn from this pride's behavior in that circumstance, which is even less likely. & it also assumes that the elephants never do anything to adapt, such as kickstomping the pride to dust in the daylight, which may or may not happen. Also, IIRC, this was more than one pride that joined together because of the drought.
