They’re usually known as the king of the jungle, but this lion was left in no doubt as to who’s boss, after getting an earful from a furious lioness.
The rare moment shows the angry lioness roaring into the face of her male counterpart as he hilariously cowers away and covers his face with his paw.
The fierce lovers’ tiff took place in the Central Serengeti, Tanzania and was spotted by wildlife photographer, George Hart, during his first ever African safari.
The 58-year-old from Toronto, Canada, said: “They were definitely having a go at each other.
“She was clearly responding to him. Whether that was in anger or in passion is the question.
“They were a mating pair and had just finished mating as we pulled up to get some shots.
“I do recall feeling pretty pleased to catch the male roaring and was just about to put my camera down when the female responded.
“I was very fortunate to catch that last frame.
“The images never cease to get a laugh, they’re so easily anthropomorphized and immediately resonate with whoever I’ve shown them to.”
