Small but powerful, porcupines take down the king of predators in the wild, making other savage predators afraid

Interesting wildlife world moment captured in Amakhala reserve, South Africa. At that time, a large hedgehog was wandering by the riverbank and suddenly encountered a herd of lions. Immediately, the predators surrounded the hedgehog and tried to attack.

However, things are not that simple. With experience and a back full of sharp thorns, the porcupine, although alone, is still able to “fight” and defeat the whole herd, which is much different in number.

In the wild, adult porcupines are also targeted by lions. But this rodent always knows how to defend itself. It will stand upright with spikes and a long, spiky tail towards its enemies, ready to injure or even kill lions.

After a few minutes of trying, it seemed that the enemy was “difficult”, so the group accepted to leave and continued their hunt. And the hedgehog has shown that, although alone, the lion is not always the “lord”.
