Few things in nature are more fascinating than the life-and-death struggles among giants going on every day in the wild.
A case in point: crocodiles vs. hippos. A full-grown hippo has no natural enemies, not even the largest African crocs can threaten it.
But that doesn’t mean that the crocs won’t be trying. Such attempts have rarely been documented, but what you are about to see is even rarer. In fact, I am not aware of another such stand-off caught on camera.

“It was a thrilling and amazing experience, one that I’ll never forget”, says photographer Mark Mol who captured the scene.
And he won’t be alone — none of these hippos is likely to ever forget the confrontation. And as far as the crocs are concerned, I’m pretty certain that they’ll do it again and soon — this unfortunate hippo that was left behind surely made for a good meal.
