A family of lions was caught on film catching and killing a heron at the Artis Royal Zoo in Amsterdam.
“This Dutch family was visiting the zoo on a quiet Sunday afternoon when things got a bit more exciting than seeing bored animals lying around their enclosures. A lion spots a heron near the water. Following her instincts she sneaks up on it and manages to grab it. The whole family wants in on the prize, but a sneaky cub gets away with it.”
Naturally, the clip went viral.
