Watch This Lion Escape From A Crocodile's Jaws

Tourists in Kruger National Park in South Africa caught a rare moment on camera when a lion almost became a snack for a snappy crocodile

A proud lion strutting his stuff thought he could make it across a crocodile-infested river in a snap but just as he had almost made it to the other side, a hungry croc decided it was dinner time.

Dodging the lightning-fast crocodile, the lion flicked around and swiped the croc just as it surfaced.

Crocodiles in the area can grow up to six metres long, while a male lion usually measures in at three.
