On Deadly 60, I've had loads of incredible animal encounters.
Here's just one of my many favourites.
This is Deadly 60 Bites.
If there's one animal that just oozes power out of every pore,
it's the lion.
It's hard to believe when they're yawning in the shade
that lions are Africa's most impressive, most fearsome carnivore.
But as the sun goes down, our lions seem to change gear.
It's like flicking a switch. They started moving with total purpose.
They're even starting to vocalise.
I have a feeling it's hunting time.
Look at that!
That's some purpose.
Looks like they've spotted something.
There's a couple of warthog off to our left
our lions have spotted them.
This is the perfect time for things to start happening.
The warthog are getting closer. They don't realise.
This one's moving with purpose.
It's going to happen.
One down... No, he got away.
He got away!
The warthog just scattered in different directions
and one has just met its end in a thicket over there.
That would have to be one of the quickest,
most completely perfect hunts I think I've ever seen.
The pride may work as a team to catch food,
but at the dinner table it's a very different story.
LIONS GRUNT AND ROAR
One's carrying what's left of the carcass over there, I think.
Although they do hunt together, once it comes down to actually feeding,
there's very much a system of seniority over who gets to eat.
Dead in a matter of seconds, eaten in a matter of minutes.
And that's certainly not enough to fill them all up.
One of these animals can eat almost half of my body weight...
..in one go.
Just the way their disposition changed
from lazy and doing nothing to all action just like that,
that is what makes lions so deadly.
