SHOCKING images show a lion chewing its way out of a zebra carcass, freaking out Reddit users.
The gruesome pictures posted on the forum site show the moment a lion was spotted staring straight through a hole it had torn in the hide of a dead zebra.
One user said: “When you hide under your covers playing your Nintendo Ds at 12pm and your mom walks in.”
Another said: “Genius, hiding in a striped animal. He will never be spotted.”
“Kinda motivational if you ask me. No matter how bad things get, you can still be a lion on the inside,” another user said.
The lion feasting on the carcass after a bloody takedown was caught on camera by Australian photographer Leigh Lofgren as she travelled through the Serengeti, Kenya.
Former Good Morning Britain director Leigh, who now lives in the U.S., spotted the circle of life moment as two lions feasted on the animal.
Mrs Lofgren, 61, said: “I did know that most kills are done by the females with the males and others coming in to eat when called and when over.
“Until the male arrives at a kill, the female can only go in through the stomach or through the backside which is more often the case.
“The male has the claws that can rip open an animal along the back and I found that staggering, as it makes you wonder just how powerful those claws are in that sense.
“I was shocked as I had never seen anything like this – in all our previous trips to Africa, had never seen them inside a dead animal in this way. It is life in the wild and it is without a doubt, humbling, exciting and rewarding.”
