Crocodile Attacks Elephant

This particular clash of the titans had a happy ending—except perhaps for the hungry crocodile. “The elephant managed to turn, but the croc was still hanging on,” photographer Nyfeler said. “Then the little baby somehow stumbled over the croc, and the croc released the elephant. “The croc went back into the water, and both elephants just ran away.”This particular clash of the titans had a happy ending—except perhaps for the hungry crocodile.

Monkey Feeding Elephant

A monkey is any cercopithecoid  or platyrrhine primate. All primates that are not prosimians  or apes are monkeys. The 264 known extant monkey species represent two of the three groupings of simian  primates. Monkeys are generally considered to be intelligent and, unlike apes, monkeys usually have tails. Elephants are large land mammals in two genera of the family Elephantidae: Elephas and Loxodonta. Three species of elephant are living today: the African bush elephant, the African forest elephant and the Asian elephant . All other species and genera of Elephantidae are extinct, some since the last ice age: dwarf forms of mammoths may have survived as late as 2,000 BC.
