Animals Video

These lions can be seen causing havoc as their mating session makes oncoming traffic build.

A female and male lion can be seen dossing in the middle of the street creating a build up in traffic.

But the traffic gets even worse when the couple start a mating session in front of the cars.

This video was shot by Catherine van Eyk at Kruger National Park in South Africa.

Catherine, 27, said: “We waited and watched them for about 20 minutes. When we got there we were lucky, because there were only roughly 20 cars.

“By the time we left there were around 120 cars.

“We were surprised that the lions continued to mate with so many cars around, we expected them to move off into the bush away from the cars, but they didn’t seem bothered at all until people started making noise.

“Cars were able to get around them, but with a lot of difficulty – cars had to drive off the road and there was only enough space for one lane.

“The cars had to move extremely slowly as well.

“We didn’t see any other lions around. A mating pair often go off on their own and join the pride at a later stage a few days after they’re finished.”
