Caught between a croc and a hard place
It's a jungle out there. Particularly when you are shaping up to be today's 'special' on the waterhole lunch menu.
In an astonishing video shot on the African savanna, a pack of seriously hungry Wild Dogs and a lone crocodile lurking just below the water's surface, have cornered a warthog.
Now, if you are the prey in this particular scenario - dish of the day for some of animal kingdom's most vicious predators - you already know there is no escape
The Wild Dogs are already licking their lips at the prospect of warthog, served extremely rare. But the crocodile in the YouTube video seems almost casual to the point of disinterest.
Both sets of hunters have an enviable strike rate in this situation, even though crocodiles eat very rarely and Wild Dogs tend to hunt alone or in pairs
The crocodile finally makes its move, lunging forward with its tail and hind legs, jaws open, to grab the warthog
The disappointed Wild Dogs can only look on as the crocodile pulls the warthog down with its powerful jaws and drags the prey off for lunch. The 'dish of the day' is off guys
