Pictured: The moment a hungry crocodile took a bite at a zebra's head

Posted on 9:21 PM by Sameer Shah

This hungry crocodile may have bitten off more than it could chew when it took a bite at the head of this zebra.

The stricken animal was attempting to cross the Mara river in the Masai Mara game reserve in south-western Kenya when the reptile struck.

And the poor zebra's chances did not look very good as two of the croc's hungry friends lurked menacingly in front of it as well.




It is not known whether the zebra survived the attack.

The Masai Mara is one of the most popular reserves in Africa.

The Mara river is notorious for being infested with crocodiles - and battling against its current, stray animals can be easy pickings for the predators.




In the spring nearly one-and-a-half million wildebeest and zebras migrate between the plains of Tanzania's serengeti and Kenya's Masai Mara.

It is one of nature's mysteries why the animals leave their grazing grounds and then make the equally frantic journey back in the autumn.

Each year, thousands of animals perish on the 500-mile round trip.

As many as 6,000 wildebeest can die in two days.
