David Attenborough’s Africa – watch a lizard snatching flies from a sleeping lion

It's lizard v lion in a clip from episode two of BBC1's latest natural history epic

Last week’s jaw-dropping Africa moment was the slow-motion giraffe fight – this week’s is just as dramatic as a brave (and very quick) lizard dares to snatch tasty flies from a sleeping lion’s face. Watch a clip below then tune in to BBC1 tonight to see David Attenborough introduce the bizarre and ruthless shoebill and reveal how an eagle’s future rests on the arrival of migrating bats.


Africa is on Wednesdays at 9pm on BBC1
