Zebra versus Nile Crocodile—a fight to the death

Category: Nature

 

Photo and caption by Richard Simonsen

This massive Nile crocodile grabs the adult zebra’s head completely within its mouth. The croc then uses its size and weight to pull the zebra’s head underwater to drown it before the feeding frenzy of multiple Nile crocs begins. The zebra is clearly alarmed at the mortal danger of the moment.

Location: Masai Mara, Mara River, Kenya
