Pack of dogs attacking a crocodile (Not for the faint-hearted)

April 21, 2010 in Sonder kategorie

Got this from a friend. Definitely worth a peek!

At times nature can be cruel, but there is also a raw beauty, and even a certain justice manifested within that cruelty.

The crocodile, one of the oldest and ultimate predators, normally considered the ” apex predator ” , can still fall victim to implemented ‘team work’ strategy, made possible due to the tight knit social structure and ” survival of the pack -mentality ” bred into the canines.

See the remarkable photograph below, courtesy of Nature Magazine. Note that the Alpha dog has a muzzle hold on the croc’ preventing it from breathing, while another dog has a hold on the tail to keep it from thrashing. The third dog attacks the soft underbelly of the croc’.
