Epic Video: Zebra Narrowly Escapes Crocodile, Runs Into Lions

Videographers captured the footage in Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, and it was shown during a July episode of National Geographic's Safari Live.
The video starts with a zebra swimming away from a crocodile. Just when it appears to have reached safety, the camera pans out and shows two lionesses in the tall grasses. For a split second, the animals all freeze, waiting for the other's next move. The zebra then tries to run, but to no avail—a lion tackles it to the ground and the second one joins to take it
