Konrad Wothe brings us a rare series of photos of a dramatic hunting scenario that took place at the Mara River during the annual wildlife migration. A mother zebra and her foal succeeded in crossing the river full of crocs safely. But the rest of her family did not dare to follow. So the mother decided to cross back to reunite with her herd. During their return crossing they were attacked by a crocodile which pulled the mother underwater while the foal swam ahead. Somehow the captive zebra escaped the croc's jaws with a big jump and reached the shore although she was heavily injured. Sadly, another predator was watching. As the bleeding adult zebra climbed over the rocky shore a leopard attacked and quickly dispatched her with a swift bite to the neck. Unwilling to give up on its prize the crocodile came ashore to claim the carcass; a second crocodile sensed an opportunity and joined the dinner table as well. The crocs were too unskilled on land to get a bite of the prey. The cat eventually won the right to dine on the zebra and Konrad noticed that when the leopard paused to drink from the river it was limping. The cat was injured and had to prey upon the weakened zebra to survive. Overall an amazing adventure witnessed by our photographer who reported that the young zebra was able to safely rejoin the family.
