Stunning Video: Quick reflexes save deer in nick of time from crocodile attack

Screengrab from the video showing a deer escaping the crocodile

The crocodile with its big build and razor-sharp teeth may appear to be a successful hunter. The truth is that several attempts of this top predator to kill are in vain. A video posted on Twitter proves this amply.


The footage starts with a deer quenching its thirst in what appears to be a placid lake or river. Then suddenly out of nowhere a huge crocodile leaps out of the water, trying to grab the deer. The hunted is equally agile if not more than the hunter as it jumps high in the air escaping those crushing jaws by a whisker. The reflexes of the deer are extraordinary and admirable.
