Leopard Vs. Crocodile
The Clash of the Titans
I shot this sequence of photos in Kruger National Park, South Africa.
It is the only time this behavior has ever been photographed. Ever.
People have witnessed crocodiles killing leopards but rarely the other way around.
This crocodile is probably about 7 feet long and therefore not even half of full size. (Nile crocodiles grow to roughly 15 feet). But still it is pretty evenly size-matched with this leopard.
For the full story about the day this happened, and what it was like to experience this once-in-history event, read my photo story The Best Day Ever.
