Leopard Attacking Crocodile

In a sure sign that Kruger National Park in South Africa is angling to be the World Wrestling Federation of game reserves, yet another unlikely and brutal animal match-up has been caught on film. In this series of photos, a leopard ambushes a crocodile. A protracted struggle ensues but it’s pretty clear who ultimately comes out on top. While crocodiles have been witnessed attacking leopards in the past, this is the first known encounter that began the other way around. Cut and pasted just for you from the pages of The Telegraph, check this out:

This encounter is bound to remind readers of the ever popular Battle at Kruger. Thanks once again to Kevin Z of The Other 95% and Deep Sea News for bringing this to our attention.

    And the moral of the story is always pack a leopard when visiting croc-infested waters, right?
    Seriously, this is a very cool recording of animal behavior.

    MBT shoes to wear only the rows of cold, rotation step foot in front of moving to do is build a launch interval, the hip flexor is stretched a little shop. Temper and stretch muscles to change arbitrarily effective joint stability

    I’ve also seen students become advocates for causes after years of projects on similar topics. Now if I could ever get around to making a pre-printed card with three targets to help differentiate between accuracy and precision then I’d be set

    Trust me, it is good, I played it over a year ago on the 360. Sony is done, and if it wasn’t for that utter piece of garbage called the Wii, it would destroy Sony for good in the gaming business.

    Although they dropped the ball on naming the ‘Common Hairy Crab.’ I don’t know how you can look at something like that and make that judgement–IT’S HAIRY. And TERRIFYING.

    I kind of wish I could go into biology just so I could discover something and give it an apropos name, like they did with the Vampire Squid from Hell. Now THAT’S accurate.

    Calling them new and calling this a discover would be like if I went to New Mexico and then claimed to have discovered a previously unknown new world.

    The anti-Japanese comments here are pretty damned offensive.

  36. Shandooga – you’re such a troll. With the utter miscomprehension of biology and evolutionary theory you’ve displayed over the years, is there really any call for you be on science blogs when you know that no one here will agree with you or appreciate your misguided ID/creationist arguments.

    Pigletta would be a good name. Po Boy (as in the swamich) would be a good name for a boy pig. Maybe I could train them to hop in and run around in a hogey bun.

    I hate capers too! And I hate anybody who’s willing to have anything to do with them. And while I’m at it, I suggest we take down the Bleiman brothers for providing a forum for their mention.

    I moved to New Mexico 6 years ago and it really is a bit like [quote: Bill Bennett] a “previously unknown new world,” at least to someone from Connecticut.

    I was just informed by a friend of mine (who immediately called the English farm upon reading our post) that there is currently a two year waiting list to purchase a mini pig. We need a way to produce them faster. Now I know that puppy farms are evil places, but in this case, a mini pig factory might be appropriate…I’m just saying.
