Battle at Kruger

This video is one of the all time youtube classics - 54 million views and counting! Why? It's the holy trinity of animals eating animals, a three way! It's got a pride of hungry lions, a herd of boistrous buffaloo and two never-say-die crocodiles battling your for the life of a baby buffalo...

Here's the 'plot' summary:

Taken from a small vehicle on the opposite side of the watering hole with a digital camcorder, the video begins with the herd of buffalo approaching the water. Upon seeing the lions, the buffalo flee and the lions charge and disperse the herd, picking off a young buffalo and unintentionally knocking it into the water while attempting to make a kill.

While the lions try to drag the buffalo out of the water, it is grabbed by a crocodile, who fights for it before giving up and leaving it to the lions. The lions sit down and prepare to eat, but are quickly surrounded by the massively reorganized buffalo, who move in and begin charging and kicking at the lions.

After a battle which sees one lion being tossed into the air by a buffalo, the baby buffalo—still alive, to the astonishment of the onlookers—escapes into the herd. The emboldened buffalo then proceed to chase the remaining lions away.

So truth be told, no animals got eaten...
