Crocodiles Wait For Leopard Across The River

Crocodiles and leopards are two of the most formidable predators in the animal kingdom, and they have been locked in a battle of wits and power for centuries. In some parts of Africa, these two apex predators can sometimes be seen in the same area, and it is often a game of cat and mouse as they try to outwit each other. Recently, a photographer in Zambia captured a remarkable scene of a crocodile patiently waiting across a river for a leopard to come by. The croc was perched on a rock in the middle of the river, with its eyes and head peeking out above the water. It was a remarkable sight, especially given the size of the croc compared to the size of the river.

The croc was no doubt waiting for the perfect moment to pounce on the unsuspecting leopard. As it waited, it kept its eyes on the other side of the river, where the leopard had been seen earlier. Unfortunately, the leopard never showed up and the crocodile eventually gave up and swam away. While it may seem like a game of patience, this is actually a common strategy for crocodiles. They are keenly aware of their surroundings and will often wait for the perfect opportunity to strike. In this case, the crocodile knew that a leopard was roaming the area and was likely to cross the river eventually. The croc was simply waiting for the right moment to make its move.

The scene captured by the photographer is a reminder of the fascinating power struggle between two of the most formidable predators in the animal kingdom. As the photographer noted, the croc was “waiting like a sentinel” for the leopard to make its move. While the leopard never showed up, the crocodile’s patience was a testament to its hunting prowess.
