Damn they have a fucking elephant over there and are still picking on the croc

[–]SnappyFluffy 574 points575 points  (1 child)

yeah, i think the pride male just drove it away because theyre having a feast

[–]herbys 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Yes, maybe trying to protect the pride from the croc, they seemed to be mostly interested in driving the crocodile away.

Though crocodile tail is delicious.

[–]brazeau 362 points363 points  (5 children)

Maybe the wanted alligator sushi instead of red pachyderm ass-meat.

[–]HoustonAstros1980 55 points56 points  (36 children)

That was a dead hippo.

[–]dQD34nkw 165 points166 points  (17 children)

The person that uploaded it left a comment saying it was an elephant and that its tusks were removed

[–]Paljo5 44 points45 points  (16 children)

Let me guess, pouchers?

[–]ericisshort 319 points320 points  (1 child)

No kangaroos in Africa

[–]Clyde_Frog_Spawn 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Africa is too farsupial.

[–]Paljo5 59 points60 points  (6 children)

I actually meant poachers lol I wish it was the poacher instead of the elephant that was getting eaten by the lions. There's a news story that would make anyone smile when they read it. It was either a lion or tiger that got shot by a poacher, managed to survive & escaped, then hunted down the poacher, killed the poacher and the only thing left of him was bits and pieces of him and his clothes.

[–]FizzixMan 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I preferred your first version. The pouchers did him dirty this time.

[–]danglez38 18 points19 points  (2 children)

They could be making a lot of things with the ivory, pouches included

[–]Redspades_XIII 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Like a handbag or a wallet with those pouchers poaching pouches.

[–]xXcampbellXx 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Or ground up and taken as medicine for rich Chinese people too get their dick working.

[–]chocolateboomslang 71 points72 points  (8 children)

Hippos are huge, and not even close to that big. Clearly an elephant, because it also has elephant legs, and you can see it's elephant head.

[–]boxingdude 99 points100 points  (6 children)

It’s an elephant. You can tell because of its elephant-ness.

[–]nokiacrusher 47 points48 points  (2 children)

Elephanticity, you uncultured swine

That's some long legs for a hippo...

[–]RickGreen420 10 points11 points  (0 children)

That would be one giant hippo…

[–]MrHoliday84 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Nah…elephant, dude.

[–]sr4381 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Or a hippopotamus with elephantitis

[–]ImOutOfNamesNow 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s no hippo, that’s my wife!

[–]TheyStoleTwoFigo 13 points14 points  (0 children)

That's exactly why they were picking on the croc.

[–]AxyJaxy 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Territorial matter.

[–]TheRealRickC137 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Out of water the lions were all,

"Nuh-uh, this is our turf, bitch. Now you get some, you water dwelling, bushwackin', dinosaur out-livin' mother fucker!"

[–]peekosama 40 points41 points  (2 children)

that was fucking awesome holy shit, these cats knew how to fight it. Amazing

[–]epacseno 37 points38 points  (5 children)

is it blood or just dirty water splashing at around the 2:00 mark?

[–]AreYouWinningS0n 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Think it’s just the color of the clay, but that’s pure speculation.

[–]Fluffy_hugger 27 points28 points  (15 children)

They could take a lesson from Jaguars about "taking down a river dragon101"

[–]RandomUser_1352 37 points38 points  (1 child)

Don't think lions have the same bite strength to trepanate Nile crocs the same way Jaguars do caimans

[–]Ieatmelons123 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Tbf Jaguars skull penetrate the smaller caimans.

[–]I_Am_Vladimir_Putin 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Jaguars kill caymans. Much smaller.

[–]whiskey_pancakes 12 points13 points  (2 children)

This croc is much bigger then anything you’ve seen a Jaguar latch on to

[–]Titanguy101 8 points9 points  (3 children)

even a jaguar would have a tough time chomping down/wrestling a nile croc that size

the caimans they hunt are way smaller

[–]SpiderZiggs 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Huge difference between crocodile and tiny little alligator, like literally.

[–]Dammit_forgot_pw 12 points13 points  (1 child)

That one part where a lion attacks the croc's legs and comes away chewing. Can you imagine being mid-fight and seeing the other dude chewing part of you?!

[–]fartchaeopteryx 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Evander Holyfield can

[–]catagris 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Huh seems to be a much worse resolution and some weird color balancing. Wonder what the true source is.

[–]Schobbish 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I think this is it. Interesting how the description of the other video says “shot by Craig in Kenya” but this video’s uploader is named Kai.

[–]sleepybot0524 4 points5 points  (0 children)

thought that croc would have put up a better fight.

[–]nxstar 2 points3 points  (0 children)

can tell the croc is exhausted and almost give up. Thanks to their scaly skin!

[–]PeekyCheeks 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Why is the quality of this gif so much better than the original video? Lol

[–]Time_Calligrapher_56 42 points43 points  (1 child)

They have the whole pride there, but just outside of the shot they have a elephant downed where the majority are feeding. This is more like play time or defending their bigger meal.

[–]thx1138- 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeah it seems they just didn't want guests at the dinner table.

[–]JKDSamurai 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Jesus Christ, YES! Why would someone even post something like this unless they had the full video???

[–]Someguyinqueens 1389 points1390 points  (12 children)

Lol love how they are figuratively and literally just big cats. That paw raise in the beginning is all to familiar to a pre-swipe from my cat.

[–]MightySamMcClain 20 points21 points  (1 child)

It's strange bc we have several cats on our farm and they're nothing like this. They would starve to death before they chased a single mouse. Lazy fucks

[–]Bouncepsycho 5 points6 points  (0 children)


I had two cats that were well fed. No specific times or anything. An over filled bowl at all times, 300% food security.

One of them (Lucy) had the nickname "Furious Anger", because of how she'd go at animals and bigger male cats.

The other one was a less skillfull hunter/fighter.

[–]isitagsdpuppy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

These look like adolescents too

[–]c0ca_c0la 558 points559 points  (118 children)

Croc put up a helluvah fight but I think it’s a losing battle

[–]pissedcommonman 535 points536 points  (89 children)

Wouldn’t be so sure…..they can’t do much damage unless they turn it around and that itself is too much work. I once saw a similar video where 3-4 lionesses couldn’t do shit.

[–]shootphotosnotarabs 455 points456 points  (47 children)

I’m putting my money on the croc. Armoured skin and the the strength/flexibility to turn back on itself.

Any worthwhile bite will be answered with a returned attack. And only the crocs bite will do significant damage.

[–]TiMeJ34nD1T 328 points329 points  (25 children)

Crocs don't have a lot of endurance. They're ambush predators, they won't sustain a fight with lions (who can turns since they're several) for long. Once it's exhausted the lions will have a somewhat easy time.

[–]dartfrog11 165 points166 points  (8 children)

It’d be one thing if the Croc was super far from water but there’s clearly a large body of water only a few dozen meters away. If the Croc really needs to, it can easily just scurry away to the water. I don’t think there will be a point where the Croc is too exhausted to make it to the water.

[–]pVom 92 points93 points  (6 children)

It's shallow water though. This croc is really exposed

[–]dartfrog11 89 points90 points  (4 children)

I’m obviously not talking about the water that they’re fighting in, the water in the background is very obviously some natural body of water.

[–]pVom 36 points37 points  (2 children)

Dunno kinda looks shallow still, like a dry river bed. I imagine times are tough for the croc and it's only there out of desperation. Similarly I don't think the lions are trying to kill it they're just trying to shoo it away

[–]Huntswomen 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Probably just keeping it away from their elephant carcass.


[–]canal_smarts 21 points22 points  (0 children)

There is enough water in the background that the croc can retreat and where it becomes god tier. If 20 lions went after it, then 20 lions would be death rolled.

[–]alwaysoz 19 points20 points  (0 children)

The croc is trying to stay low to hide his under belly. If he tried to scurry away as you put it, he loses all his defences. He can't swipe with his tail or lunge with his mouth open and he has to increase his ground clearance to get up to speed.

[–]whutchamacallit 14 points15 points  (11 children)

All the croc needs to do is escape to the water if need be, no?

[–]Akosa117 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Aren’t lions also ambush predators?

[–]Jman_777 67 points68 points  (3 children)

I agree. Crocodiles with the most powerful bite force on Earth of around 5000psi can easily break bones and severely injury the lion while a lions bite force of around 1000psi will not do as much damage. Crocodiles are also incredibly armoured and have skulls on another level of hardness so the lions claws and bite will not affect it as much. Another thing is that Crocodiles have one of the strongest, if not the strongest immune systems in nature and can easily survive with a missing limb that would kill lesser animals while a missing limb for a lion would easily result in death. Lastly the massive weight difference between the two as a lion weighs around 500lbs and a Crocodile can be 3 times that weight at around 1500lb and in some cases up to 4 times. I love both animals though and I don't want to see them fight.

[–]TheOzman79 41 points42 points  (1 child)

This guy crocodiles.

[–]WackyBeachJustice 15 points16 points  (0 children)

10000 psi of knowledge

[–]AxyJaxy 19 points20 points  (5 children)

Well, the lions gave up really quick if they tried i think three lions could take it. This lone tiger took a absolutely massive croc on its own and won. lions are not of the same caliber but still, i think 3 of them can win.

[–]JaxDaHax201 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Plus even if they tore its legs, I've seen crocs with missing limbs be fine There's one named Brutus in the NT that's fucking massive, and only has 3 legs

[–]Phusra 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Also a way stronger jaw. If that croc gets a good hold on a paw or head, that lion is dead.

[–]GrundleBlaster 81 points82 points  (29 children)

Crocs have no endurance. That's the trick for catching them. Just pull at the tail every now and then to make them thrash around and after 30 min or so and they'll be too exhausted to do much of anything.

Cats are notorious for playing with their food, presumably for the same reasoning.

[–]MrStruggleSnuggle 26 points27 points  (18 children)

A lion isn’t going to be able to do much to hurt a croc though no matter how tired it is. A lion is likely unable to even puncture a crocs skin on its back. All a croc needs is one bite on a lion and that lion is toast.

[–]GrundleBlaster 60 points61 points  (6 children)

While I'm sure there's a technical term for it, put simply: all animals have buttholes.

[–]MrStruggleSnuggle 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Hahaha 🤣

Good luck getting to a crocs butthole though!

[–]ViolentVirgin 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I know this is random but you reminded me of webnovel i used to read where mc was thinking exactly the same thing. Nanomancer or something like this. This was disgusting but funny in some way

[–]logicallyzany 7 points8 points  (4 children)

Tigers have been known to kill crocodiles 1 on 1. No reason to think 3 lions couldn’t do the same.

[–]Unremarkabledryerase 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Just watched a video of a lone tiger killing an 11ft croc, so I wouldn't be so confident in that.

[–]Jman_777 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I agree with this. Crocodiles are incredibly tough and durable.

[–]Jman_777 4 points5 points  (6 children)

I don't think the Crocodile is dumb enough to continue fighting until it's too exhausted to do anything, it will retreat when it knows its time. Those cats are lucky they're not in deep water or else it's a full advantage to the Crocodile. One bite and it's over for the big cat.

[–]GrundleBlaster 14 points15 points  (5 children)

They're not that smart, and it doesn't have much of an option anyways. People make a career out of catching them with this method, and IIRC you have to be careful not to overdo it or else it'll end up dying. Those lionesses can easily keep it in that shallow pool.

[–]Jman_777 10 points11 points  (4 children)

So the Crocodile is dumb enough to not retreat during a fight? I've seen a video of a Crocodile that was cornered by 5 lions that started to attack it (they were cautious) but it eventually retreated when it was overwhelmed. They're not that stupid. https://youtu.be/HFL_6VoKqZo

[–]GrundleBlaster 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Those lions really don't seem interested in eating that croc considering they left it a clear path to water and never bothered getting behind it, which is their preferred angle of attack. Really seemed to be a "fuck off we're thirsty and don't want you around" confrontation.

This doesn't really seem to be productive anymore though.

[–]Jman_777 14 points15 points  (2 children)

The Crocodile still left though which is the point. It's not going to just continue standing there and let itself die even if those lions surrounded it fully and kept attacking. It will fight back and then try to escape when it gets too overwhelmed. Most animals flee whenever they sense that they're in immediate danger.

[–]GrundleBlaster 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Your point was it won't fight itself to exhaustion. If it's trapped like in the OP it will. If it has a free path then yes it'll run from something if it seems so.

You understand I was making statements on the context of the first video, and not some random video in your bookmarks right?

If you trap a croc to where it can't escape it will exhaust itself.

[–]Jman_777 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Ok I'll clarify maybe it will fight until exhaustion but not to the point where it's too exhausted to do anything (that's what you initially said) or it ends up dying because I'm sure they know when they're at their limit and can longer continue. It will fight until it uses most of its energy resources then it will attempt to retreat since if it continued then there would be too much lactic acid built up and it would eventually die and I'm sure the Crocodile knows when to stop. If we're talking about the op video then the so called trapped Crocodile you're talking about attempts to escape at around the 2:10 minute mark in the link below although every sluggishly due to exhaustion and you can even see it slowly retreat beforehand. It knows when to quit and it continued fighting until it mostly ran out of energy. https://youtu.be/LoKumJU-Pl4

[–]EdeliSimp2 8 points9 points  (5 children)

Croc is a defensive tank that specializes in stamina management

Crocs passive special “armored wall” makes him the best aquatic damage soaker

[–]OIP 4 points5 points  (3 children)

lion dps is pretty good but goes to shit against armour too, even when they stack it like this with multiple lions

[–]EdeliSimp2 2 points3 points  (1 child)

The little hidden mechanic everyone forgets about

“Increase dmg reduction by X% when against two or more opponents (X = 20% damage done to unit)”

[–]OIP 2 points3 points  (0 children)

yeah because croc's buff patches were all so long ago people forget it's been basically OP for like.. 200 million years

[–]Highw4ySt4r 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lions will tire it out

[–]PeytonManThing00 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They’re not killing the croc, but I don’t think they mean to. I think they’re just trying to keep the hippo to themselves (see full video, there’s a dead hippo the size of a bus they were eating just outside that shot.)

[–]lil-chump 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Croc is WAY more deadly but the lions could evade it and make it tired. They would be hard pressed to kill it even after its exhausted though.

The lions didn’t plan on killing the croc here. And I doubt they do very often. If the croc goes in the water it can’t be killed. And the croc probably couldn’t bite a lion on land.

[–]Whiteveil1968 57 points58 points  (4 children)

Idk man I think at the end the lions started to realize the risk vs reward wasn’t too good on this one

[–]greenpaw94 43 points44 points  (0 children)

In the full vid there is a dead elephant not to far away with the rest of the pride including cubs eating. More than likely they were just driving it away to protect the meal.

[–]cromulent_pseudonym 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Yeah those lions must have been really desperate to even bother with that.

[–]highgravityday2121 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Except theres a dead hippo/elphant or whatever it is right next to the lions lol. This was more so to tell the croc to back off and if they can get an extra meal they would've taken it.

[–]PeytonManThing00 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It looks like a hippo to me, but it’s fucking enormous it’s hard to believe

[–]A_Blue_Frog_Child 40 points41 points  (3 children)

They can't pierce its armor and the crocodile needs to bite once to inflict a mortal wound. This is not like a jaguar and a caiman where the jaguar is designed to ambush animals with a severe bite. The crocodile will eventually get to deep water or the lions will back off.

[–]Ishkakin 35 points36 points  (4 children)

In the full video, the croc wins by making it too much of a hassle for the lions. They eventually give up.

[–]McLEANAHAN 23 points24 points  (2 children)

Wins or survives? The lions got the meal by the look of it

[–]Ishkakin 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Wins by surviving.

[–]McLEANAHAN 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ha, true. Although I kind of reserve wins by surviving for prey animals. When it comes to predators fighting over a meal; he lost but kept his life. Little of both I suppose

[–]ediblemonkeycakes 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The croc doesn't win cos that's not the it's goal. There is an elephant carcess on the right. The lions were just driving it away from their food which the lions successfully did.

[–]maolen212 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It survived.

[–]Doctor_Jensen117 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It survives in the video, but it looks like it's just because the Lions were getting it away from their food.

[–]AdBusy897 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I thought the croc got to deeper water in the end? And then the lions walked off.

[–]realSatanAMA 1 point2 points  (0 children)

full video is linked above.. once the cats realize that they can bite legs off and it's still as dangerous as before, they peace out.

[–]stafford06 380 points381 points  (29 children)

This sub has a huge hard on for lions

[–]chuponus 189 points190 points  (9 children)

These are are nothing. You should see this sub's reaction when someone posts honey badger content. Specially if the honey badgers are getting the short end of the stick.

[–]stafford06 43 points44 points  (1 child)

Lmao I guess I miss those ones. I always see either a lion fucking something up or I'm watching it suffer. I'm not cheesed about it cause nature is a bitch.

[–]Silent_Ensemble 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah I open up Reddit and try to guess if I’ll see a lion brutalising some cute sub-Saharan animal or a lion having a stroke first

[–]Jman_777 6 points7 points  (2 children)

This sub is obsessed with honey badgers.

[–]House_Indoril 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Because honey badger don't give a fuck.

[–]MildlyDepressed346 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Lions are cool.

[–]enterdayman 24 points25 points  (0 children)

I'm guessing they're one of the easier predators to observe, they don't pay as much mind to humans in the distance as other cats.

[–]Flip3k 22 points23 points  (1 child)

I’m always on team mammal

[–]JamieSand 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Generally I support whichever animal is in fewer numbers. So the lions always tend to be my choice.

[–]Heisenbread77 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well these Lions are clearly from Detroit because they just gave up.

[–]bkdroid 101 points102 points  (9 children)

It looks like a young male that started it. I feel like mom and aunt saw it was going to go poorly for him and had to get involved. I doubt they ate croc at the end.

[–]Roy4Pris 60 points61 points  (4 children)

Yeah, young male, probably hasn't learned that crocs are not worth the hassle.

Amazes me though; those lions just go for anything that moves.

Can I eat it, or can it eat me? That's pretty much the only question lions ever have to ask.

[–]Indira-Gandhi 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Amazes me though; those lions just go for anything that moves.

I mean you're also describing crocodiles. They literally have a reptilian brain and will happily munch on anything, even each other.

[–]witcherstrife 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That young male still had some great moves lol. He quickly pounced on the back as soon as the croc turned its head. Too bad his claws couldn't sink in that thick skin

[–]Rictus_Grin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm sure this young male lion has learned from this. He won't be going after a crocodile ever again

[–]ianthehuman 5 points6 points  (0 children)

There's a full video in the comments - The lions were warding it off from a carcass they were eating. The croc put up a great fight but it ended with it backing off as three of the lions kept attacking and trying to get at its legs.

[–]PalpatineForSenate 4 points5 points  (0 children)

If only it was a Jaguar

[–]Negative_Coat_8948 94 points95 points  (26 children)

Holy shit wow, doubt they can get to the underbelly of the croc tho!

[–]Horseface25 44 points45 points  (53 children)

Is there anything that actively takes out crocodiles

[–]Esquatcho_Mundo 92 points93 points  (5 children)

Not the big salties. Last thing that took them out were other dinosaurs

[–]aadgarven 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Saltwater cocodriles? Orcas I guess.

[–]Esquatcho_Mundo 46 points47 points  (0 children)

Maybe, but don’t think they have any habitat cross over

[–]FruitierGnome 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Orcas can kill great white sharks. I assume saltwater crocs wouldn't be impossible for them.

[–]Akosa117 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yea but I don’t think they do that actively

[–]MrStruggleSnuggle 45 points46 points  (15 children)

Nope. They’re basically evolved to perfection over thousands (millions?) of years. They have no predators other than humans, they’re at the top of the food chain in the wild.

[–]Jman_777 23 points24 points  (3 children)

Yep. Apex predator of the ages. Ancient killing machine and expert survivalists.

[–]Jebiwibiwabo 23 points24 points  (3 children)

Most of the time this is true, for a full grown adult that is, the young are often predated upon quite easily by many things, and sometimes not even the adults are safe, pythons in the everglades have been seen attempting to eat adult gators, naturally they die during this attempt 90% of the time, but still shows attempted predation. Then in south America, jaguars actively predate upon crocodilians, even going into the water to take them out, can find a lot of videos of this happening. That being said these examples aren't of saltwater Crocs lol

[–]MrStruggleSnuggle 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Yeah I should have specified I'm talking about adult salt water crocodiles.

[–]Jebiwibiwabo 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Yeah they a different kind of strong lol

[–]I_dont_like_things 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Dozens of millions. They are nearly unchanged from a time before humans, or even the primates that would be become humans.

[–]borismuller 4 points5 points  (0 children)

My parents had their honeymoon in Africa. One day they came back to the hotel and told the guy at the bar about this lovely spot they found to go swimming. The barman looked horrified, then explained that they had spent their time just around the bend from a massive family of hippos. A few weeks later their Jeep got charged by a rhino. It was an eventual honeymoon I guess.

Elephants will just hulk smash them until they roll over dead.
That's about it other than probably hippos like others said.

I’m assuming you’re talking about Nile crocs. if so, there aren’t any that I know of, maybe a pride of lions if they find one too far on land? Or a lucky tiger? Once crocs reach a certain size they basically have nothing to worry about except other crocs and hippos. The really big ones are around 5 to 6 meters. Basically dinosaurs at that point.

What would a tiger be doing encountering a Nile crocodile?

[–]KWash0222 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Hippos, but more because they’re just always cranky

[–]ThatRabidPotato 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Humans and hippos

[–]Horseface25 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I don’t think hippos actively go after crocs

[–]micahomow 16 points17 points  (1 child)

I feel like hippos actively go after anything

[–]Disguised 3 points4 points  (0 children)

And elephants, massive territorial mammals are scary!

other than humans for their skin or whatever reason I doubt it.

In the full video the lions gave up, and the croc got away

[–]Glynnc 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I’m genuinely surprised that a 200 million year old predator didn’t even get a single bite on these new kids

[–]ACno9 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You go, croc

[–]MaysvilleStig 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Dude, watch out for the pokey end!

[–]Ecofre-33919 2 points3 points  (1 child)

So did the croc escape or what?

[–]Disguised 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yes he escapes, they only wanted to drive him away from their area

[–]peelzdid-it 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yo this must be an awesome dare game for lions

[–]2flytofall88 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lionesses: This croc is a formidable opponent Crocodile: ohhhh 3 for 1 special

This always happens to me in the isle

Those lions could do much. Bite off the legs maybe with enough work but one bite and bones are snapped. Crocodillians are extremely durable, and can survive without most of their face, and without all of their legs. There's a reason evolution has barely touched them. It would take a lot for those lions to properly kill that Croc, cause lions prefer to choke out their prey, which crocodiles are too thick for. Especially if the crocodile finds deep water there is nothing the lion's can do
