A lion suffered a rather humiliating rejection when a lioness stymied his attempts at mating with a slap.

Footage of the encounter, filmed at Kruger National Park in South Africa, revealed that the amorous moment had gone horribly wrong when the randy lion tried to bite her in the rear.

The lioness, initially receptive to the approach, quickly terminated any chance for romance.

At the beginning of the video, the two lions were lying side by side next to the road inside Kruger National Park

In the footage, filmed on Thursday, the lion and lioness are seen lying side by side next to the road.

After looking around sheepishly, the lion slowly edges towards his mate.

Tentatively, he sniffs her rear as she looks away nonchalantly.

Emboldened by this, the randy lion decides to take a bite out of his partners bottom, which resulted in an immediate reaction.

The lioness leaps to her feet as she swats the lion away while roaring at him to back off. Meanwhile, the lion slinks back, looking visibly embarrassed.

The two beasts stood facing each other while the lioness made sure that her mate didn’t make a second attempt at mating.

Eventually, she sits back down into her previous position.

Moments later, the lion shakes himself off and lies back down by the lioness.

It’s not clear whether the lioness was simply not interested or not ready but the romantic atmosphere disappeared very quickly after the love bite.
