A hungry young lioness looks like it's hitching a ride on the back of a zebra as it tries to hunt the animal down for dinner. The sly lioness spent 10 minutes stalking a herd of zebra and patiently waited before pouncing.

Within 10 seconds of sprinting at 40mph it caught up and leapt onto the back of the fully-grown zebra. Optometrist Yusuf Chavoos captured the tense moment at the Pilanesberg National Park in Bojanala, South Africa.
