A naughty male lion sneaked up on a lioness while she was dozing in the road, and she wasn't too impressed about the interruption.

The hilarious interaction was caught on video by 32-year-old safari guide Joshua Loonkushu in Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, and shared it with Latest Sightings.

“On the previous day, we had spotted this pride of lions that had just killed a wildebeest within the banks of the Sand River in Maasai Mara. I decided to head over there the next day to try and track them down. Luckily I managed to find them!

"In the beginning, I couldn’t imagine that the male lion was going to behave like this! He got up and kept on creeping towards the lioness, almost stalking. He was taking all effort to keep as silent as possible. I told my guests that we are up to something quite interesting here.

"As he got to the lioness, he bit her! It took the lioness exactly two split seconds to go from fast asleep to be in defense mode and ready to attack!

"Soon after this scuffle, the rest of the pride joined the two, hugging them as if they were asking what was the matter?!"
