This Lucky Zebra Just Barely Escaped A Lion Ambush (VIDEO)

Talk about a battle that's so unfair it's not even funny: One zebra versus five lions.

This striped fellow was enjoying a leisurely stroll through a river in the Maasai Mara National Reserve in southwest Kenya -- completely unaware that he was about to become a meal for a pride of lions. But the lions exposed themselves too soon, and the zebra was able to make a dashing U-turn and escape to freedom.

How about a round of applause for this lucky zebra that defied all of our expectations, eh?
