[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a male lion eating a full grown elephant. We saw a group of lions (2 grown males, 5 grown females, and 13 young ones) eating the elephant. They don't seem to be able to bite through the elephant skin. The ate the trunk, tail, and went inside through the stomach. I didn't take many photos that include the elephant because I didn't think it was a pleasant sight. That night a group of elephants came by and chased away the lions (we were told that it was too dangerous go there by the ranger).

Hi Sitthivet,

Nice eye contact with the lion and I like his hair style. I am glad that you did not show the actual eating part as it can be gruesome but this is a good sighting that you had.
