This amazing phographic sequence was recently captured at Kruger National Park by American Wildlife Photographer Hal Brindley while he was concentrating on a unrelated subject. According to wildlife experts this is the first recorded or witnessed incident of its type. The incident astonished park rangers who had no explaination as to why the leopard would choose such a potentially hazardous meal.

    It should be obvious: because it tastes like chicken!

    Tip of my hat to the photographer for keeping an eye open for action outside of what he was intending to shoot.

    It seems like the crocodile is quite a distance from water. I’d love to read more of the story behind these unique images.

    Those were the most amazing photos ever!!! How long did it actually take for the leopaard to kill the croc? Great work.
