A brave Motswana young lady is giving social media an adrenaline rush after she was filmed holding the tails of a pack of lions and leopards.
Holding giant cats by the tails
Sego Marotela, who lives in Gaborone, is the talk of social media in that country and beyond after her hair-raising videos went viral.
She calls is having a “leopard walk”, walking behind the scary giant cat while holding its tail like it’s some child’s swing pony.
While Ilin other pictures she is holding two lions’ tails as they walk, in some she is rubbing the beasts’ backs as they relax under her tender hands. Continuing with her safari adventure she also posted herself holding a cheetah by its tail whilst they both walk.
“She the only brave human being who’s capable of holding lions and cheetah with their tails… She can also put her hands in their mouth and wild animals don’t do anything to her,” said comments on social media accompanying the beautiful footage.
“Marotela can also take a walk with them and also make them laugh. This is something that African countries should be proud of it. This is a great talent, not everyone can be brave like her,” others remarked.
Doing the unusual
Reacting on her Facebook page, which has over 11 000 followers, Marotela appeared surprised that she was trending.
“Apparently Africa decided to make me trend. I never saw it coming honestly. Seems like I have gone viral internationally, now with over a million views in just 3 days. I guess I have really done the unusual,” she said.
It seems nothing can get in the way of her bonding with nature, even fear. Some of her posts go with the caption ‘Of all the worst choices I made in life, I made the most dangerous one. I gave my life away for a minute’.
She also took to her Facebook skme pictures of herself right on the edge of a waterfall. Accompanying the pictures are chilling videos of her adventure.
Marotela’s extra lives
It seems Marotela is used to outdoor adventures as she has posted herself in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, earlier this year. These posts are full of encouraging comments and commendations for the lady’s unmistakable beauty and bravery rolled into one soul.
But it is the posts with the lions that have been met with different reactions, with most of people fearing for her life, while others warn her that she was dicing with death.
One particular Facebook user was convinced that the lady might have some extra lives stashed somewhere, just in case…
According to behavioural scientists, a series of physiological processes happen to our bodies when we perceive exciting or dangerous stimuli. This is caused by the release of adrenaline, a hormone produced by a gland situated on top of the kidneys.
Making our heart beat faster, the release of this hormone prepares us for a fight or a flight. What do you think of Marotela’s hormone levels? – HourlyHits
