15 Lions all Decided to Climb Up a Tree at the Same Time …Check Out why They Did It


Lions are one of the most fearsome predatory animals in the world, and no one in the jungle could ever scare them off, so what led these lions into climbing up this tree?

It wasn’t some predatory animal, though, that caused the lions to take cover from this tree—but a swarm of pesky flies.

Australian photographer Bobby-Jo Clow was leading a safari in the central Serengeti in Tanzania when he came across these lions climbing up a tree. He immediately took pictures of them while they lay on the branches of the tree.

The bizarre moment an entire pride of lions decided to take a kip - 15 feet up a tree. At least 15 of the beasts were caught on camera lounging on the branches of a sturdy tree in Central Serengeti, Tanzania

A total of fifteen lions decided to climb 15 feet up and were caught on camera lounging in the branches of a sturdy tree.

They could finally relax after they escaped the pesky flies and irritating sunlight.

A passenger who saw the lions said, “Our guide spotted the pride in the trees, and luckily, we were able to get close enough to the lions to create some unique images. We were close enough that we could hear their vocal interaction and also hear some of them snoring in the tree.

“It was an incredible sight and was very comical at times as the lions appeared rather clumsy while moving and repositioning themselves.

“Our guide told us that due to the recent rains, the grass was quite long and that lions climb trees to escape the insects that thrive there.”
