A couple of slow strides on the part of the zebra or a couple of fast moves by the crocodile would have made the difference.
Crocodiles will never leave a chance to go for any prey they have set their eyes on. They use stealth and speed as their main weapons, apart from the massively strong jaws and long sharp teeth. We have come across many videos where they have attacked and caught the prey from within the water. But not every time seems to be a lucky one.
The video shows a zebra crossing a water body and climbing on the bank. As soon as it climbs, a huge croc appears out of the water with an open mouth. But, it misses the zebra by a few inches.
The video is shared on Twitter by Figen @TheFigen_ with the caption, “That croc was visibly pissed. 😂”.

That was a very close call. A couple of slow strides on the part of the zebra or a couple of fast moves by the crocodile would have made the difference.
