    BEIJING, July 22 (Xinhuanet) -- In the past, crocodiles have long been known to kill leopards, but this time, onlookers at South African game park observed the reverse scenario -- a leopard snatched a crocodile from the water.

    American wildlife photographer Hal Brindley snapped the amazing moment as he was photographing hippos from his car at a waterhole in Kruger National Park.

    "It happened in about five minutes, then the leopard was gone. I drove away elated - it was the most amazing thing I've ever seen," the photographer said, adding that "I asked many rangers in South Africa if they had ever heard of anything like this and they all said no."

    On the foottage, the big cat just emerged with the croc in its mouth and began to suffocate its prey, who gave in to the leopard after a fearsome fight.
