“The lions were surprised by the appearance of perhaps something they had not seen before,” wrote rangers and videographers Ruggiero Barreto and Robyn Sewell.
Before long, a handful of the predators had sauntered over for a very close look at the unintimidated creature.

“Not many betting people would have given the crab good odds on making it across the river past a pride of lions, but this little fella was up for it,” they said.
