Doomed zebra is flipped into the air by crocodile as it meets a gruesome end in Kenya

Crocodiles are well-known for their fearsome ability to catch and kill their prey.

And this huge creature was no exception as it flipped an unfortunate zebra into the air with the force of its powerful jaws – before sending a fountain of blood into the air as it bit into it. 

The shocking scene was pictured in Kenya by financial consultant Dennis Stogsdill, 50, from Chappaqua, New York, during a trip to the Mara Triangle, part of the Maasai Mara National Reserve in the south of the country.

Mr Stogsdill photographed the lead-up to the zebra’s death. The animal was part of a herd which was cautiously crossing a river. Unbeknown to them, the 16-foot long crocodile was lurking beneath the water. 

It was seen springing from underneath the unfortunate zebra, forcing it into the air. It then clamped its powerful jaws around its midriff.

The zebra was then seen upside down with its rear hooves sticking out of the water. As the crocodile took a bite, blood sprayed into the air and was vividly caught on camera. 

A final image showed the crocodile with just a single one of the zebra’s hooves hanging from its mouth.
