12 Times Predators Targeted Newborns…

Predators usually go for someone their own size. However, that doesn’t mean they’ll pass up the opportunity of an easy target. Hyneas go for buffalo calves and lion cubs a lot of the time since they’re easy to chase down. Sometimes, cheetahs will take down impala claves that have just been born. But the most horrendous type of attack is when hippos eat their own young! Here are 12 Times Predators Targeted Newborns! 12) Hyena eats newborn buffalo Hyenas might get a bad image for stealing others’ food, but they’re very good at hunting too.

The lion simply picked it up by the neck and took it away…
