Full sequence of leopard taking out a crocodile at Kruger NP is here. Om nom nom nom.
The sequence of the leopard defeating the crocodile is amazing to say the least. I never heard of leopards hunting for crocs, but now I know they do.
I was kinda laughing at one of the quotes under one of the pictures "It just doesn't make sense. The meat you get out of a crocodile is just not worth the risk it takes a predator to acquire."
When an animal is hungry, risk goes out the window, and if they could think logically that would be out the window too because of hunger, can you blame them? Answer: no
This reminded me of Battle at Kruger, a stunning piece of wildlife video.
I've always thought leopards, pound-for-pound, were one of the most powerful predators on earth. But I never knew one could take on a frakking crocodile.
