This lioness clearly wanted to keep all of her nine lives as she desperately hung onto a tree before taking an embarrassing tumble to the ground.
The clumsy cat was filmed climbing a tree in the Southern Serengeti before she lost her balance and after clinging on for several seconds, fell ungraciously to the ground.
The humiliating event was witnessed by other members of the pride who sat securely in the tree looking down on the lumbering lioness.

The 42-year-old was guiding a group of tourists when he came across the ungainly episode and managed to capture the hilarious moment on camera.
