1000 Yard Stare
πŸ“Έ by @mattarmstrongford

This lion has seen some shit.

He suffers from a condition called mange, a skin condition caused by mites.

The mites burrow into the outer layer of skin and form tunnels, they then rapidly reproduce and before you know it, your hair is falling out and you’re itchy as hell.

This lion was also ousted from his pride, probably because of the mange, and sustained these injuries trying to take down a cape buffalo lone ranger style.

According to the photographer, this battle lasted over an hour with small breaks in between, as both animals were exhausted but also unwilling to give up.

In the end, both the lion and the buffalo dies from their injuries.

The lion bled out and the buffalo died of infection.
