These two buffalo were staring down on a pride of 8 lions. The lions were about 75 meters (225 feet) away from the herd. The lions were watching the buffalo with equal interest. After several minutes the lead buffalo turned their backs on the lions and walked away. The lions also got up and walked in the opposite direction of the buffalo. The who situation became a non event, but it sure was tense for a bit !
