When a lion attacks

We were attacked by a lion yesterday. A genuine, wild South African lion. I kid you not. Seriously.

First she curled up in the feeding pen.

Then she sneaked into the section under the floorboards of the viewing platform to check out what was on the menu for lunch. Then she sneakily jumped 3m (about 12 feet) into the air and bashed her head against the floorboards.

In disgust at her failure to capture lunch (and nursing a very sore head), she headed outside to her sister lion on the sunning platform.
