July 1 (IndiaToday) – Five lions and one crab, what can you expect? A showdown, the crab running for its life? Well, not exactly in this case. Lions are synonymous with danger but in the video which has now gone viral on social media, a four-inch crab has pretty much left a lion’s pride fascinated.
The video was captured by rangers Ruggiero Barreto and Robyn Sewell at the MalaMala Private Game Reserve. In the 2 minutes 36 seconds long video, a lion suddenly takes notice of a crab walking on the sand and gets really curious. After a while, more lions join the watch party and start to carefully notice it as the little feisty crab tries to make its way away from the predators. “This is the amazing moment a pride of lions were seen off as they came claw-to-claw in the wildwith a feisty four-inch CRAB (sic),” read the caption alongside the video shared on Latest Sightings YouTube page. The video has 84,136 views on YouTube.
Netizens are pretty amused with the video of the crab surrounded by dangerous predators. “They remind me of my cats when they see a bug (sic),” a comment read. “FANTASTIC footage! WELL DONE guys (sic),” another comment read.
