During a flood in South Africa, a gigantic 1,500-pound Nile crocodile was observed consuming a shark.
Mark Ziembicki, 46, from North Queensland, Australia, took the stunning photographs on a recent trip to South Africa.
The rare meeting was triggered by above-average rainfall in South Africa, which resulted in flooding, resulting in “an abundance of food for these predators at the entrance of river estuaries as freshwater species are pushed downriver into salty coastal waters,” according to Mark (below).
“With several juvenile sharks spotted over the weekend, it also looks to provide perfect nursery and pupping locations for the bull sharks.”
In several recent viral articles, the images have been incorrectly tagged as being taken in Australia, as shown in the Reddit thread posted below.
This is certainly a South African sighting of a Nile crocodile devouring a Zambezi shark pup, However, similar sightings have been reported from Australia.
Take a look at this snapshot of a classic Australian sighting: A bull shark being devoured by Brutus, a huge saltwater crocodile from Australia’s Adelaide River.
