Aug. 28 (UPI) -- A lion that attempted to sneak up on a baby rhino in South Africa went away hungry when its earned a swift rebuke from the animal's mother.
The video, filmed Aug. 19 near Carnarvon, shows the young male lion hiding in a bush as the mother and baby rhinoceros walk past.
The lion springs into action once the other animals have their backs turned, and attempts to pounce on the baby rhino.
The lion makes contact with the rhino, but quickly jumps back off when the mother turns to face it. The baby runs off, and the mother ends up pursuing her young instead of staying to fight with the failed predator.
