Hungry crocodiles

On arrival to Lower Sabie camp, we saw more than the usual number of cars on the bridge near the camp. So, after checking in, we decided to investigate as the cars were still there.

It was easy to see the reason for the presence of the onlookers: a dead zebra was in the water and a number of crocodiles were feeding on it.

There was a particularly large specimen that at some point almost totally encircled the zebra with its body!

Below I present you with a few pictures of what we saw. I trust that, by comparing with the zebra, you will get an idea of the size of the crocodile!

 

NOTE: I am working on a video that I will probably post in the next couple of days as it still needs some editing that requires time that I do not have while traveling.
