Herbivores Outwit Carnivores (video)

In this clip from the BBC/Discovery Life series you’ll see stunning footage of supposedly helpless herbivores beat the carnivores who are hunting for dinner.

Sometimes numbers bring safety. Sometimes powerful hind legs enable animals like the North American Pronghorn to outrun any predator. Sometimes horns do the trick. Sometimes they just out-maneuver their enemies. Watch the shots of zebras, gazelles, and buffalo being pursued by cheetahs, lions, and even baboons and coming out the winners.
