Fpr some reason I thought WT would be quite a bit older, with a large eyepatch and a knotted kerchief on his head.

It's a machine that makes the bridge into 3 or 4 lanes wide at different times of the day, depending on traffic flow.

It's like a pretty tough winger trying to hit a beefy #8. He just stands there and takes it.

Am I the only one amazed at the speed and skill of the Lion to literally duck under the horns of the Wildebeest and then grab it by the throat?


Not the only one at all. Stunning reflexes.

Is that a fairly young wildebeast to be that size compared to a lion?

Nope, that is just standard. Lion males are enormous, seeing them in the wild is awe inspiring

Quote:
Nowak indicates the typical weight range of lions as 150 to 250 kg (331 to 551 lb) for males and 120 to 182 kg (265 to 401 lb) for females.[6] The size of adult lions varies across their range, with those from the southern African populations in Zimbabwe, the Kalahari and Kruger Park (P. l. bleyenberghi, P. l. vernayi, or P. l. krugeri)[61][62] averaging around 189.6 kg (418 lb) and 126.9 kg (280 lb) in males and females respectively, compared to 174.9 kg (386 lb) and 119.5 kg (263 lb) of male and female lions from East Africa.[64] Reported body measurements in males are head-body lengths ranging from 170 to 250 cm (5 ft 7 in to 8 ft 2 in), tail lengths of 90–105 cm (2 ft 11 in–3 ft 5 in). In females reported head-body lengths range from 140 to 175 cm (4 ft 7 in to 5 ft 9 in), tail lengths of 70–100 cm (2 ft 4 in–3 ft 3 in),[6] however, the frequently cited maximum head and body length of 250 cm (8 ft 2 in) fits rather to extinct Pleistocene forms, like the American lion, with even large modern lions measuring several centimetres less in length.[65]

Record measurements from hunting records are supposedly a total length of nearly 3.6 m (12 ft) for a male Southwest African lion shot near Mucusso, southern Angola in October 1973, and a weight of 313 kg (690 lb) for a male Southeast African lion shot outside Hectorspruit in eastern Transvaal, South Africa in 1936.[61][66] Another notably outsized male lion, which was a East African lion that was shot near Mount Kenya, weighed in at 272 kg (600 lb).[61][33] There are also reports of large Asiatic lions.[33][67][68]


Nah that isn't a full size Wildebeest. Irrespective of that it was a stunning miscalculation ...

That's a cracking gif Snaps. I've watched a few times now, trying to figure out what combusts inside the gel block - is it just the air that's been forced into it compressing?

Same. It must be vaporised gel as fuel, there's nothing else.

Kiap linked to the answer...

Quote:
The block is hit with a bullet, and as the bullet rapidly expands and dumps its energy into the gel, a cavity expands rapidly. During this process, some of the (oil-based) material in the cavity has been vaporized. After the expanded bullet exits (to the right of the gif above but easier to see in the video below), the cavity in the block begins to collapse. The resulting pressure increase appears to ignite the vaporized material, which explodes with a flash followed by some exhaust.

The flash was a result of the air inside the cavity rapidly compressing along with some flammable particulate. Kinda like how this fire starter works: https://youtu.be/4qe1Ueifekg
