    Re: Crocodile attacks elephant

    I'll bet that croc was worse off from that encounter than the elephant. Can't see it but I'll bet the elephant stood on the croc to hold him still and gored him with her tusks. There's a reason most animals won't mess with a full grown elephant.

    Pretty sure the parents would have stomped that croc in that case too. Elephants are mean when they want to be.

    Re: Crocodile attacks elephant

    I think the elephant gored the croc too.

    I think so as well. Looked like it lowered its head to do so.

    Re: Crocodile attacks elephant

    I was hoping the video would go on just a bit longer, because I fully expected the croc to come floating to the top. I do think he stepped on him and possibly gored him to get loose. I'm guessing the croc was rethinking his decision about the time he was yanked out of the water like a blue gill.

    That was awesome.

    Can't believe the Croc had enough strength to pull the Elephant in the water.

    I dont think it did. I think the elephant went into the water, and stood on the croc.

    Re: Crocodile attacks elephant

    Could a croc even dismember an elephant? Crocs usually take an animal and shove it under a rock or log or something dont they? Probably would have been a pointless kill anyway.
