The crocodile caught the fastest animal in the world, dragged it under water and ate it
In South Africa's Kruger National Park, a crocodile caught and ate a cheetah cub, considered the fastest animal in the world. The animal footage was posted on the Kruger Sightings YouTube channel.
Guide Busani Mtshali was conducting an online tour for guests of the Phinda Private Reserve and spotted a female cheetah with two cubs at a watering hole. He showed in the video how the young male approached the reservoir and began to carefully quench his thirst. Suddenly, a crocodile jumped out of the water and grabbed the cub in front of his mother.
In a matter of seconds, the reptile dragged the cheetah under the water and ate it. The mother and her second calf stood on the shore and watched the incident. “Unfortunately, we have now lost one young male cheetah,” Mtshali said, pointing to the reservoir. "It's very, very sad and painful."
The animal video has garnered over four million views and tens of thousands of likes. “I've never seen anything like it. Something incredible ”,“ The moral of this story: there are no invulnerable ”,“ Not only a rare moment. Cheetahs themselves are very rare, ”the audience commented.
Kruger National Park is located in the northeast of South Africa. Its territory is home to about one and a half thousand lions, 12 thousand elephants, 2.5 thousand buffaloes, about a thousand leopards and five thousand rhinos.
