This is the dramatic moment a ferocious lion killed a wildebeest in less than a minute after a brutal battle on an African plain.
The whole clash was captured on camera and shows the lion waiting patiently for the injured wildebeest before pouncing on its hapless victim.
The two animals can then be seen tussling with each other before the big cat grabs the wildebeest by the neck and pulls it to the ground, where it is unable to recover.
And just 60 seconds after the fight began the wildebeest is left for dead after it struggles to break free from the lion’s grip and gives up its fight.
The action was shot in the Maasai Mara in Kenya by photographer, Aditya Singh, who lives in Rajasthan, India.
The 48-year-old said: ‘One morning, soon after we left our camp, we spotted two young male lions, brothers, at a distance.
‘While we were waiting by the lions we saw an injured wildebeest limping towards the lions, unaware of their presence.
‘Both the lions crouched down, ready to charge, while the wildebeest kept coming towards them.
‘When the wildebeest was within striking distance, one of the lions pounced on the hapless wildebeest.
‘The lion delivered one blow from his powerful front paw and before the wildebeest could recover, the lion grabbed the wildebeest by the neck and it was all over.
‘In less than two seconds the lion had a death grip on the wildebeests neck and was pulling the prey to the ground.
‘For the next 20 seconds the wildebeest tried to break free and then gave up.’
