I think the oldest are from the Eocene. Could be wrong tho...
That looks a lot like the 'Walking With...' series.
Wonder where they put the Liplurodon. Probably on the back because apparently it was freekin enormongus (yes. that is a word)
I'm telling you, the pic is from Chased by Sea Monsters, a Walking with Dinosaurs special. I have it on DVD
I guess a modern version would include Leviathan (I like the original spelling, ok?) probably fighting Megalodon. Now that fight I would like to see, unlike those stupid Animal Face Off-ish fights in History Channel...
BTW I found the other pic of the hyena scavenging a shark. (A big one, too).
The crocodile in the first pics wasn´t eaten, it was just killed If I well remember...
As for the one in the last pic, its a caiman not a crocodile, but I assume we're talking about crocodilians in general. :>
Here are some more.
Leopard vs Nile crocodile:
Jaguar vs caiman:
Tiger vs Mugger crocodile:
Seems that big cats usually have the upper hand over crocodilians... jaguars and tigers have even been known to kill them on the water (were crocs are most dangerous) and drag them to land to devour them.
Also, here's the uber-famous pic of the python that "exploded" after eating an American Alligator:
Saltwater croc eaten by another saltwater croc:
And finally, the famous pics of the "lionesses vs crocodile" battle, which the poor croc lost at the end:
I seem to remeber a tv documentary that showed a single croc chasing away a whole pride of lions from a kill.
It must depend on the size of the croc and how hungry/desperate the combatants are at the time.
I remember that one too. In fairness, he was one HUGE croc.
I know this is art, but cool!
(probably Nile perch or similar)
Monstrous; If I found something like that in my canned fish I would probably go vegetarian XD
Could it be perhaps a Goliath tigerfish? That fish has monstrous teeth and is said to attack Nile crocodiles:
^^ scary monster
Not sure if this has been posted already, but:
This pic is based on fossils of crocodile dung that have shark tooth marks on them, which were seemingly made when the dung was still inside the crocodile (that is, the shark bit the crocodile and punctured its guts and the dung inside). The shark was a relative to tiger sharks.
Anyone see these photos of a leopard fighting a croc?
According to QI hippos drag sharks out of the water and then trample them to death
