Leopard versus crocodile

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!

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