Unparalleled, no less. And our hero has a front seat view. Or should I say a front tied-up to the ground with stakes view? He must be really enjoying it. He might even be tempted to take a swig of… oh wait, that’s poison in that there straw!
Suddenly, the lion puts his claws around Tarzan’s neck and tells the apes to move away or else he’ll let Tarzan have it! And then, holding Tarzan as hostage, he takes him and the other guy to his den which is surrounded and protected by his henchlionesses, and proceeds to devour them.
Wow, and we get to see it here too!
My money’s on the apes.
The original “Rumble in the Jungle”.
Four against one? That doesn’t seem like a fair fight for the cat.
Okay, not one but about a half dozen bull apes against one lion. Now it’s interesting.
I watched a video one time where the female lions were driven away from there kill by hyenas. A few moments later a male, who heard the activity, came blowing in, The hyenas attacked him, but the lion picked out one of the pack and ran him down and killed him. The lion then turned and looked around as if to say who’s next. The hyenas split.
I do believe Numa is outmatched 4 to one, unless he has reinforcements hiding in the bush nearby. Anyone for refreshments, there is yellow drool on the menu…and it’s free!
I’m sorry, but those stakes look so flimsy, I’m sure that Tarzan could break them just by doing the old bench pectoral fly. I mean, with thews like that, even two-by-fours would crack.
“A fight unparalleled in jungle history”? Maybe in a bad way. Four apes against one lion? I don’t expect the jungle to be fair, but let’s not overhype it.
And an incredibly frustrated Tarzan is too tied up to sell tickets…
I’d say the lion better pack it up. You ever see the teeth on a large ape?
Lions tend to avoid confrontations with multiple antagonists – one on one is more to their liking, as the hyena encounter indicates. Several may take on an individual, like a cape buffalo, but if the buffalo is able to rejoin the herd, the lions will NOT attempt to take them all on. Three have been seen to attempt to take a female giraffe, but she had her calf to defend, and drove them off, injuring two with her deadly front hooves, used like slashing clubs with astonishing speed and power.
