Lioness intercepts fleeing zebra

by @roe3160

To put some perspective on the impressiveness of this attack, here are some numbers behind it:

This was a fully grown plains zebra, the largest of the zebra family with males weighing up to 400kg (880lbs)

This animal was running at top speed, which is roughly 65kph (40mph)

The force of this zebra colliding with the lioness would be 72,520 newtons.

The lioness probably weighs 130kg (286lbs) and reaches a top speed of 80kph (50mph)

The power of the lioness to hit the zebra head on and almost stop it in its tracks is incredible.

What a killing machine!
