Ahmed spotted the lioness walking alone and realised it could be a good opportunity to get some footage. “I wanted to see if she would check the camera out.” The video shows the moment the lion spotted the stick with the camera attached, and cautiously made her way towards it. She bumped her nose against the lens then grabbed it between her teeth. Ahmed admitted he was worried about getting the camera back when the lioness first took off with it. “We managed to chase after the lioness, and she dropped the camera. Although it had a few scratches, the GoPro still functioned.”
