These hungry lions thought they'd stumbled upon an easy lunch when they spotted an antelope coming towards them...
Unlucky for them the crafty kudu antelope didn't fancy becoming fast food!
These amazing snaps were taken by a group of tourists out on a safari in South Africa who saw the animal's scary encounter.
The kudu sees a chance to escape and tries to leap to freedom over the head of the lions...
Phew! The feisty antelope makes the jump much to the surprise of the big cats!
The clever kudu managed to sprint off to safety - leaving behind three very confused lions!
