A enormous Crocodile kills juvenile Wildebeest/Gnu in the Mara river by crushing the head in its giant jaws. The small Wildebeest was crossing the Mara rive in the annual migration and got slightly away from its mother while swimming to reach the other side. One of the enormous crocodiles swung into action from the bank, swam to the middle of the river and snapped the Wildebeest.
