Warning: Semi-Graphic Footage of the Inherent Violence of the Natural World
Kenya’s Kruger National Park is a microcosm of the country’s wildlife diversity.
Because of that, it’s also a place where you can watch a bunch of lions go wild on a crocodile. (Check out YouTube channel Kruger Sightings for more footage from the park.)
Honestly, we feel sort of bad for the crocodile, because this video reminds us that, while the giant reptiles are essentially living dinosaurs that Mother Nature made so good at killing and eating that she didn’t feel the need to change their design, cats – of all shapes and sizes – are sort of jerks. You can see in the background that there’s a fresh kill available for the lions, and yet they’re intent on bothering this crocodile, because you know, cats.
Enjoy the often balletic violence of the animal kingdom, and be happy you don’t have to put up with this kind of thing.
Look at you with your big brain and your opposable thumbs.
