Predating Like A Boss


A fish eagle spotted at the Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania by wildlife photographer Mark Sheridan-Johnson, who sez:

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.
