This video, taken by a visitor at the Samburu National Reserve in Kenya shows the incredible moment a trio of of lions take on a Nile crocodile in a fearsome fight for elephant meat.

Kai Banks captured the drama on film while visiting the safari park, which shows the animals fighting tooth and claw over an elephant which had died at the side of a lake. The fight takes a long time to reach its conclusion.

The lions didn't have an easy time of it: the Nile crocodile is the world's largest reptile preditor, with more than 30 teeth, and wasn't an easy prey for the lions.

Unfortunately, Kai had technical issues so its conclusion is instead shown in photos.
