"Leopard savaging a crocodile caught on camera
The astonishing spectacle of a leopard savaging a crocodile has been captured for the first time on camera."

Maaan, that's awesome!

"In the past, there have been reports of crocodiles killing leopards, but this is believed to the first time that the reverse scenario has been observed."

"It just doesn't make sense. The meat you get out of a crocodile is just not worth the risk it takes a predator to acquire."

Wow, all of them are awesome videos. ^^

But'eh... crocodiles. Isn't that a type dinosaur? I mean I've heard that lizards and crocodiles are the few species of dinosaures that's left on the planet?

EDIT: "Are Dinosaur Alive Today?

If the young earth creationist perspective is correct, the dinosaurs actually went extinct after they were reintroduced following the global flood of Noah. Therefore, these animals have either gone extinct since the flood, or are still alive today in diminished form.

Reptiles are the only terrestrial vertebrate that continuously grows as long as they live. Mammals on the otherhand, have an adolescent period following which there is no further growth. For animals with this capability, the size they may reach remains totally theoretic especially when considering genetic diversity.

Historically, reptiles of any significant size have been automatically and immediately killed when in the proximity of human habitats. Large reptiles are simply perceived as a threat and hunted-down. This tendency has placed reptiles under intense natural selection. Selective pressure against large sizes will naturally remove this ability from the gene pool. When we consider the range of variability available to other animals, as demonstrated by domestic breeding, it is not hard to imagine the immense sizes that reptiles might reach given their exceptional ability for growth.

Although many dinosaurs are extinct, it is certain that if allowed to live free from selective predation by humans, modern reptiles would reach much larger sizes than they do today and closely resemble their ancestors found in the fossil record."

No. A Crocodile is not a dinosaur. Descendents of them sure, and some were around during the later ages of the dinosaurs I think, but.....no.

But some kind of lizards, maybe? I mean I've heard that there's a type dinosaurs that's still alive today. Maybe not directly a dinosaur, but in relations.
