This epic standoff was captured by photographer Marc Mol in 2011 during a trip over Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park. Mol was taking a microlight flight early in the morning when he and his copilot saw more than 140 crocs feasting on a dead hippo. The animal’s herd quickly fled the scene as the hungry reptiles chowed down, but the battle of the beasts reflects a brutal, yet necessary encounter in the animal kingdom.

Take a look at the photos below:
