American wildlife photographer Hal Brindley took the series of incredible pictures at South African game reserve in the Kruger National Park. In the pictures, the giant cat races out of bushes to shock the crocodile, which was swimming nearby.

Onlookers were amazed to see the leopard drag the crocodile from the water as the reptile fought back. Eventually the big cat was able to sit on top of the reptile and suffocate it.

In the past, there have been reports of crocodiles killing leopards, but this is believed to the first time that the reverse scenario has been seen.
