At times, wildlife photographers willingly risk their lives just to get the perfect shot. Often subjected to travel to remote places like the jungle and tropical lands, they often have little or no access to help in case of an emergency. And since they are dealing with wild animals such as lions, tigers, hyenas, or snakes, an element of danger is always present with each click of the camera.

Atif Saeed, a 38-year-old freelance photographer from Pakistan, was interested in capturing images of an angry and seemingly hungry lion at a safari zoo park near Lahore.

Armed only with a camera, the fearless photographer alighted his jeep, moved slowly towards the male predator, and shot a few frames. It was a very risky move for Saeed who was only ten feet away from the king of the jungle.

“I was sitting in front of him just near my car and the door of my car was open. I was sat on ground few feet away, so he was treating me like his prey.”

Just seconds after he snapped the shot, the furious lion jumped at the photographer, with a very blatant intent to attack him. Apparently, the sound coming from the camera’s shutter caught the attention of the enraged animal.

Fortunately, Saeed was able to run for his life, get inside his jeep, and escape from probably the most life-threatening moment of his life.

Speaking to The Daily Mail UK, he narrated how he cheated death.

I was sitting in front of him just near my car and the door of my car was open. I was sat on ground few feet away, so he was treating me like his prey.”

I was thinking – I must show the character and status of lion and this was the only way I could think of to achieve this.

The story finished in few seconds as the lion aggressively jumped towards me and I just about scrambled into my car. I was laughing at that time, but now when I think back about the incident I don’t think I would be able to do it again. It was a pretty close encounter.”

The harsh winter cold is not only challenging to us humans but to our pets as well. For people with pets who live in areas where there is snow, keeping their pets warm during the winter can be attained by turning the heater on and keeping their furry friends inside the house.

But this guy had a different idea. He took a box, spread it with shredded newspaper, put his pet inside the box, and then put the box in a fridge for four months. If you're wondering what kind of pet he has, well, he has a tortoise. And, if you're also wondering about the temperature in the fridge, it's 5 degrees (Celcius, I think). Of course, this kind of forced pet hibernation would not be possible if you have a hamster, a dog, or a cat as a pet.

Watch the unboxing of the pet tortoise:
