The ꜰɪɢʜᴛ between elephants and crocodiles is probably too familiar to you. Today I will send you thrilling photos of a ᴄʟᴀsʜ between these two huge animals, you will not be disappointed.

Martin Naifele, who was touring Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park, came across a ʜᴏʀʀɪꜰʏɪɴɢ sight and took a picture of it. These dramatic pictures show a ᴄʟᴀsʜ of the titans as a protective elephant mum and a ferocious crocodile get in an epic tug of ᴡᴀʀ in Zambia.

A mother elephant bringed along her calf to the Luangwa River  for drinking water when were ᴀᴛᴛᴀᴄᴋᴇᴅ  by a crocodile. When she lowers her trunk, a crocodile hiding in the water leaps out and ᴀᴛᴛᴀᴄᴋs  her by biting her trunk firmly. The scared little child hid behind the mother’s back with the sudden presence of the ferocious crocodile.

Brought down on her hind legs, the elephant didn’t give up and turned away from the water, despite the predator clamped down on her trunk. Using incredible strength the female managed to shake off the croc after walking away from the water. However, the hungry crocodile was determined not to give up the opportunity to have a hearty feast this time. Although the mother elephant shook her trunk to let the crocodile fly away, the crocodile still clung to its trunk with two strong teeth.

At this time, the mother elephant has a new tactic that is to pull the crocodile ashore and use the baby elephant’s body to press on the crocodile. With all the weight of the baby elephant’s body, the crocodile seemed to feel the ᴘᴀɪɴ and let go, back to the water. Finally, with their intelligence, the mother and daughter of the elephant family escaped from a life-and-ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ situation.

South Luangwa National Park is home to 60 species of mammals. It is especially famous for its large herds of elephants and buffaloes; and for the bountiful hippopotamus population that inhabits its lagoon. Lions are also relatively common, and South Luangwa is often considered one of the best places in South Africa to spot the elusive leopard. However, there’s more to South Luangwa than these safari icons.
