Angry Crocodile ᴀᴛᴛᴀᴄᴋs A Leopard Attempting To sᴛᴇᴀʟ Its Food
In the video, a leopard and crocodile are engaged in an extraordinarily rare battle to remove a carcass from the water. Alberto Scattolin, the 54-year-old proprietor and guide of Matimba Lodge, recorded this sighting. He likes to visit the Kruger in the late afternoon to search for fresh wildlife encounters.
He saw this amazing sighting at Ngobeni Loop in the H14, a place well known for its leopards. When he got to the waterhole, he saw a crocodile munching on a ᴅᴇᴀᴅ animal in the water. But suddenly, a leopard showed up and discovered the potential free meal. He quickly began walking toward the crocodile in the water.
Alberto stayed and observed as the croc repeatedly resisted the hungry leopard’s attempts to sᴛᴇᴀʟ its lunch. However, the croc was having none of it and defended the food by ᴀᴛᴛᴀᴄᴋing the leopard with snapping teeth whenever it approached and almost turned into a feast.
It was an extraordinary experience because he was the only person in the area at the time, it was like attending a private concert. When he had to leave because the gates were ready to ᴄʟᴏsᴇ, the sighting came to an end. The interaction between these two animals was the most incredible he had ever witnessed.
Let’s watch the video:
