I have to share this one with all the 'mites!

In 2006 we stayed in Lower Sabie for 2 nights and we could see the bridge in a distance. Early the second morning, just before we left,I saw 2 cars standing on the bridge, looking at something. We hurried there and couldn't believe our eyes! The one crocodile was eating another croc.

We went back there at about 16h30 and he was still lying there with a piece of tail sticking out of his jaw

Nice pics!

Here's a video and pics from Crook's Corner in Northern Kruger a few weeks ago, eating a fresh nyala bull.

Interestingly, I thought the antelope may have got stuck in the unseasonably underwater Limpopo sand!! :?

Saw this "tail-less" Crocodile at the famous Transport Dam over the long weekend. At least it looked like it had a very short tail. Anybody know/seen this too? Wonder what could have happened to its tail? Can't imagine a crocodile without its tail. That should cause all sorts of problems like its swimming and balance.

And the Biyamati Crocodile is a monster. Here it is, seen over the same weekend.

Have a great weekend :thumbs_up:
