This is the moment a lizard was attacked and eaten by a honey badger – while it was trying to mate with its partner.

Pictures show a pair of monitor lizards mating in the Kruger National Park in South Africa. Unaware that they were being hunted.

Seconds later, a honey badger pounces, attacking one of the reptiles before flipping the creature over and devouring it.

The dramatic images were captured by 43-year-old freelance wildlife photographer, Lisl Moolman.
