Crocs, lions and a baby buffalo....

Don't know if this has been done before. Amazing amatueur footage of the cruelty of nature and also a good ending - maybe not for the lions though.

An amateur video shot on safari in South Africa has become a phenomenon on YouTube.

Almost 10 million people have watched the footage - dubbed the Battle at Kruger - since it was put online in May.

The eight-and-a-half minute video, shot by American tourist David Budzinski, clearly shows the natural forces of nature at work.

The stunning footage starts off like a David Attenborough documentary, with a pride of lions stalking through the African savannah in search of a meal.

But soon the film turns into an astonishing depiction of nature in action. A pride of hungry lions attack a herd of buffalo near a watering hole. They catch a small calf and wrestle it into the water.

But things take a twist when a crocodile tries to snatch the calf for itself. A brief tug of war ensues, before the lions drag the calf away.

But the situation becomes even more incredible when the buffalo return to take on the lions.

Charging the predators, they successfully chase the cats away - even goring one and tossing it into the air - before the calf manages to get up and return to its family.

The footage his been proclaimed one of the favourite clips of all time by one of the website's founders.
The video is at the bottom of the newspage here:

I like that as well, just shows that humans are not the only ones who will risk all for their family/young.

Also like the part where the rascally croc sneaks in on the act. You can only admire him for trying, even though it was in a dastardly uncrickety way.
So we are agreed
Buffalo = nails.
