Survival in the wild has never been easy and simple. The animals must always be alert to the attack of predators even while sleeping. Today, in this article we will witness the hunt between crocodiles and zebras in the river. Every time they migrate in large numbers through rivers and swamps, zebras are always attacked by crocodiles. Attacks always make zebras weaker.
Crocodiles are the most advanced of all reptiles.
All species of this reptile are ambush predators. They lie dormant and hide for a long time, then attack with lightning speed and force. They are considered carnivores with sharp teeth that can crush prey in an instant. Poor animals often become food for them like zebras, wildebeest, lions, …… Larger prey often get stuck in water holes when they are distracted while drink water in the river.
An alligator can eat large amounts of food very quickly. They do so by chopping food and swallowing large chunks. Feathers, beaks, feathers, hooves and horns were all gone. Surprisingly, their teeth serve very little in the process of eating. They are mainly used to attach to the body of prey.
In one meal, they can eat up to half their own weight of meat. Digestion is slow, but up to 80% is converted into new tissue. However, most active at night, alligators have been observed to enter a “sleeping state” during the day until 5pm.
Being cold-blooded, they need outside heat to help regulate their internal body temperature. They can stay in the sun for long periods of time on riverbanks or the coast.
The real battle begins
Elsewhere, a herd of zebras was crossing the water. The Assassins were waiting for them. A zebra is suddenly attacked by a crocodile, an unlucky adult is locked up by a cold-blooded killer. After many attempts, fortunately escaped death.
The herd of zebras were not afraid and continued to cross the river. Then a poor young zebra was trapped by the crocodile and brought back to its buoy. The dead zebra was torn to pieces. Crocodiles cannot bite victims. All they could do was chop it up and then devour it. It was horrifying to witness a huge herd of zebras trying to cross the treacherous waters.
The crocodiles are very brutal. The dead zebra was torn to shreds. A lone zebra leg was seen hanging from the crocodile’s jaw as it continued to use its jaws to break open the animal. They enjoyed a delicious meal together.
The 1,800-mile migration was arduous and an estimated 250,000 zebras were unable to reach their destination safely. Although many predators are lurking waiting for their next meal, the herds of zebras that frequently cross wooded rivers to migrate also make them most vulnerable.
Chaos is happening. Crocodiles constantly attack other zebras. It knocks down its prey and repeatedly attacks it underwater. The brave victim does not give up, it resists in despair. Helpless waiting. Fortunately, after many attempts, it escaped from the hands of the cold-blooded killer.
