Crocodile Killed In Battle With Hippopotamuses

SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK, TANZANIA - DATE UNSPECIFIED: ***EXCLUSIVE*** Photographer Vaclav Silha. These explosive pictures show the moment a hasty crocodile was killed after getting trapped in a maze of angry, angry hippos. The spectacularly rare battle of the beasts was caught on camera by stunned wildlife photographer Vaclav Silha. The 45 -year-old czech got the shock of his life after setting up his camera on the banks of the Nile river in the Serengeti national park, Tanzania, to take snaps of a huge group of 50 hippos bathing in the river. A colossal fight broke out between the group and a sneaky crocodile that strayed too close to a mother with calves. The unlucky crocodile's armoured body was no match for the raging hippos - one of the most aggressive creatures in the animal kingdom that can apply several tons of pressure in a single bite. One of these pictures was originally published in the November issue of BBC Wildlife Magazine. (Photo by Vaclav Silha / Barcroft USA / Getty Images)
