Crocodile attack

Check out this crocodile attack of the most unusual kind.

Crocodile feast as deadly predator attacks its own kind.

Crocodiles are vicious, we know. A creature for humans to avoid entirely by every means possible.

This seasoned and brilliant killer is here to stay and we are here to witness its ferocious life as a predator and make sure we don't end up being victim prey ourselves.

But here is a bizarre twist that was witnessed recently; a cannibal crocodile!

German wildlife photographer, Jens Cullman, was at a waterhole at Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe, Africa when he witnessed nature at its savage best. An older crocodile attacked a younger rival which was no match for the bigger beast.

 The big bully clamped his jaw down on his unlucky adversary and tossed him around like a rag doll.
Jens said: "There were lots of loud bangs as the dead croc repeatedly hit the water surface.

"Lots of birds around the waterhole were hanging around, hoping to get a piece of him. But in the end the big Crocodile swam away with the dead croc. It was a very rare sighting – I've never heard of a cannibal croc before!"

Talk about a midday snack!
