Lions are part of the elite club of apex predators. In this fantastic footage shot by South African zoologist Kevin Richardson, we see just how capable lionesses are at hunting (they do most of it for the pride).

Richardson strapped GoPro to one of his lionesses named Meg and we watch from her perspective as she sneaks through the veld on the hunt for a waterbuck. Once she spots it, Meg gives chase and before the buck realises the danger, it’s already too late.
