I love crocodiles. They scare the crap out of me on a visceral level, so I'm fascinated by them. I mean, c'mon: they fit the definition of "monster".

In Africa, it's been known that a croc can take down a leopard -- even a leopard can't outrun the blinding speed of a croc's jaws -- but now, for the first time, evidently, photos have been taken of a leopard taking down a croc!

Photographer Hal Brindley got the shots, and they are very, very cool... well worth a look. He even put up a video:

Whoa. But the picture sequence is more complete. It gave me chills.
