In a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life, I watched a male lion solo hunt and take down a young hippo. After we watched a lioness attempt a hunt but fail, she exited the area leaving this male alone. Thinking it was unlikely there would be any more excitement, suddenly the young hippo started walking towards the male lion. We could see that the lion was starting to stalk the hippo; he charged and the two faced off. The hippo made a crucial mistake by deciding to turn its back and run; and the rest is history. I was filming the takedown but quickly switched back to photographs once the hippo was on the ground.
