    I always thought it was Crocs that killed Leopards


    Crocs kill virtually anything they can get their jaws on, but obviously this Leopard got out of the wrong side of bed and decided to turn the tables. Amazing!

    The few who learn by observation.

    Crocs are the ultimate killing machine absolutely nothing will normally take one on. This is the first time it has ever been photographed. I reckon that it has to be between 3.5 and 4 metres long, I think it just looks shorter because of the angle and being doubled over. About 20 years ago I unloaded an Uzi into one and it still kept on coming, I guess it's why I find it so impressive.

    I thought it looked like a wooden statue too, but the article the picture is from show it's the genuine article in other pictures. Like they say, the risk involved in attacking a crocodile wouldn't seem worth it given the meat you get from it. Maybe the leopard is having a mid-life crisis and needed something to spice its life up.

    I can't imagine how a leopard could kill a croc. Leopards are skinny and lightweight, not mighty like a lion. I think a Hippo would destroy a croc too them things are mean.

    Because the croc is in land and the leopard caught him by surprise, the croc will beat leopard in water 100% of the time.

    If you think crocodiles are fearsome creatures, do some research on prehistoric crocodiles. Wow.
