Picture Worth A Thousand Words?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


The saying goes a picture is worth a thousand words but here we have a picture that doesn’t tell us enough.

What happened here? We see a beautiful male lion strolling through the Serengeti but he has quite a gash on his back. Other wise he looks unharmed and he has a full looking belly so what do you think? A fight, a hunting injury, miss judged a low branch?

This picture leaves us hanging and is a few words short of the sentence. What’s your thoughts?

    I brightened the image and enlarged it to the maximum, it looks like an injury.
