Watch “Meg” the Lioness Hunting a Waterbuck

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.

Amber the Amazing Downhill Dog

In dogs meets base jumper, Mario Richard goes for a short flight and his dog, Cajun, faithfully watches and follows him down the mountain to meet him at the landing point. It’s an endearing, albeit chaotic doggie cam video. See it on Vimeo if you missed it.

In the same vein, whenever mountain biker James R takes to the track, his trusty dog Amber is hot on his heels. Amber is a Vizsla, a Hungarian gun dog that is known for its natural hunting abilities. James attached a GoPro to his bike and filmed Amber as she zipped through the forest, taking the most efficient route to keep up her “prey”. Take a look at their chase video below.
