Croc gets snapped up

If Peter Pan taught us anything, you don't mess with large reptiles, which is why we were surprised to see this snap of a baby croc getting snatched by an eagle.

The pic was taken by safari guide Mark Sheridan-Johnson, who was raised in Tanzania but whose parents come from Newcastle, on his day off from showing tourists the wonders of his adopted homeland at the Selous Game Reserve.

Mark said: "In nine years of being a safari guide I would never expect to see this unheard of behaviour. I saw the fish eagle on the sand bank with something in its beak. I noticed it wasn't a fish but was in fact a Nile crocodile.

"The eagle quickly took off but I got a couple of shots of it flying away. I think this eagle could be a lone individual who has learnt how to hunt for crocodiles. It certainly knew what it was doing."
