There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

I will start the thread with some rare image, showing cannibalistic behavior of crocodile. These photos are taken in Letaba river, located in eastern Limpopo Province, South Africa by photographer Rob Bowie. This photo is taken on last Monday, i.e. 23-nov-2015.

I can't say why but I have a strong dislike for seeing big cats fall victim to crocodiles. On the other hand I do crack a slight grin at seeing a tiger or lion show a croc who's boss.

Read this very interesting blog on how a young elephant calf was attacked by crocodile and saved himself with the help of his herd.

But all seriousness, how strong that little calf was to be able to almost haul that croc out of the water.
Great find

African Wildlife Photography Maggy Meyer:
Crocodile collect her just hatched babies
A very rare sighting in Masai Mara. Mother was immediately collected with her mouth each baby who crawled out of the egg shell. The babies were so tiny and the mouth of the mother so huge. She took each cub with her teeth from the ground and then it looked as if she would swallow it. But that was not the case, because crocodiles bring their babies in a bag in her lower jaw. When the bag was full and was seen no longer a baby, the mother returned from the bank into deep water and we could see nothing. Crocodiles accustom their babies only very slowly to the water, which can take several hours.

The same sighting Sanjay posted about, very nice sequence.
Renata Ewald Wildlife and Nature Photography:
Gruesome seen of huge crocodile devouring a hyena carcass in the Sabie rivier in the Kruger National Park. 

Apparently the hyena died on rocks close by,reason for death not clear. This huge crocodile then went onto the rocks and claimed the hyena carcass for himself!
Some smaller crocs came closer and help themselves with smaller pieces that came loose from the tossing of the carcass into the water by this huge crocodile. 
Soon it was all over when the last part of the hyena.it's leg dissapeared down the crocodile's throat. 
As the water calmed down it was hard to believe that this monster croc was lurking down below!
