Nature at its finest can be a thing of beauty. Here's pictures of the bloody carnage that results.

Impala put in a tree by a leopard for later


Kiwiblog's DPF has been having a holiday in Africa - here's a cool picture he took of an impala having a sleep in a tree. How cute!

It's not actually,  the baby impala is dead and was put in the tree by a leopard for safe keeping so it could come back for a feed later on. How clever!

The photo was taken in Chobe National Park in Botswana.

While the leopard that caught this impala seems to be pretty smart, I'm more impressed with this leopard that took down a crocodile...



Elvis the Crocodile eats a lawnmower!



Elvis the Crocodile tried to eat his keeper but took a lawnmower instead....

A hungry saltwater crocodile named Elvis with an apparent affinity for household machinery charged at an Australian reptile park worker before stealing his lawn mower.

"Before we knew it, the crocodile had the mower above his head," Tim Faulkner a witness said.

"He got his jaws around the top of the mower and picked it up and took it underwater with him."

The reptile workers quickly left the crocodile's space. Elvis appeared to enjoy his newly aquired mower and sat guarding it until he was bribed with some Kangroo meat to give up.

Tick eats man's ear!

Tick eats the inside of man's ear.


Check out this picture of a tick inside a man's ear dining on the parts in his ear canal!


The Herald reports that the doctor "inserted a fibre-optic endoscope video into the man's outer ear canal and found the parasite, about 3 to 4mm long, with its eight legs wedged on the eardrum.

The tick, which had been feeding on blood from inside the ear, had caused extensive bruising. It was also "tightly attached" and wouldn't budge, even after framycetin drops were used to try to dislodge it.

Mr Hornibrook anaesthetised the vet's ear and dragged the tick out with a small hook" which apparently made every thing tickety-boo!

The World's Biggest Snakes

The World's Biggest Snakes


Everyone loves a good snake story. 


So it's with no surprise that the biggest snakes are the most popular of all the snakes

It's probably because they seem the most dangerous - and let's face it, these giant snakes are dangerous because they could eat you all in one go!

The massive python in the above picture was apparently found somewhere in Indonesia and measured 30 foot long. That's a huge ass snake!

Seven men to hold this snake!

python zaps itself on an electric fence


This giant man-eater decided to attack an electric fence. That was alive with electricity. The result was never going to be in doubt as the snake got tangled up and basically electrocuted himself to death. 

Look at those teeth! 

That's another reason to be scared of snakes - once one of these bad boys has your leg in his hungry mouth, it's not coming out in a hurry.

 Perhaps the snake was trying to turn himself into an electric eel?


This huge snake was killed by the dam construction workers in Nam Theuan Hinboun (hydro power plant) in Khammuan province, Laos.

One worker supposedly lost life to this monster...but that could be the stuff of myths and legends!


albino python

Here's a massively yellow / albino python running round in someone's apartment. At Animals Eating Animals we have a fond appreciation for albino snakes. Or maybe it's just Britney Spears. Our editor gets confused.

Underwater action
Some journalists are ballsy. Like the guys that got Deep Throat to talk. Others are just insane and will run round underwater taking photos of dudes taking photos of giant snakes. If you ain't paying for the photo session.... you're bait!

Huge Cobra?
I have no idea about the picture above, is it some kind of huge cobra? If it is, I'm sure even the Cobra Commander would be happy with the size of that thing!

python dragging a walleroo up a cliff

Well kanga clearly missed out on boxing lessons and lost the round to this giant olive python. The strength of that python is something to behold.

I have no idea if it got the Kangaroo up to the ledge but whatever, an A for effort Mr Python.

Orca captures a seal from an iceberg


orca eats a baby seal
Help me if you can!
I think this picture of an orca taking a seal and dragging it into the water to drown it and eat came from a tv show fronted by Richard Attenborough. It's not very often (if ever!) that Animals Eating Animals has brought readers (hi Mom!) such a cute picture of an animal about to be eaten in a watery grave!

This photo was apparently the result of   three hour team hunt in which the entire pod or Orca co-operated in order to make giant waves that washed the seal from its ice floe, and then did side swipes with their tail, blew bubbles, rolled the ice floe and then eventually dragged the seal to its death.

These methods were apparently employed as a training exercise for the younger members of the Orca pod but is also to ensure that the seal too exhausted too turn round and attack his attackers back. Cos seals can be big mean bastards too!

The famous Captain Robin Falcon Scott witnessed these hunts over 100 years ago and scientists today think that they may be the most complex team hunts in the natural world. Except for a pack of cougars out on the tiles at your local bar.

Orca don't always win - here's a picture of a baby seal getting away from an Orca attack!

Sharks are the bomb! Or how they ate the sailors of the USS Indianapolis


USS Indianapolis
By now in your life you must have seen the movie Jaws. It's quite possibly one of the best movies in movie making history and it certainly has one of the best characters to ever captain a boat in a movie. As the shark hunting lads settle in one night after a hard day's shark chasing, Captain Quint tells a story. Probably one of the most chilling stories a kid could ever hear about.....

The USS Indianapolis was a vessel in the United States Navy. She holds a famous place in history due to the circumstances of her sinking, which led to the greatest single loss of life at sea in the history of the U.S. Navy. On 30 July 1945, shortly after delivering critical parts for the first atomic bomb that was to be dropped on Japan, the Indianapolis fell victim to a torpedo from a Japanese submarine. Of 1,196 crewmen aboard, approximately 300 men went down with the ship.

The remaining crew of 880 were cast into the briny deep. Only 316 sailors survived their time in the water. If the remainder didn't drown, they faced the horrible death of being eaten by the sharks that found them.

It's thought that the Indianapolis sinking resulted in the most shark attacks on humans in a single incident in history. It's figured the majority of the sharks were oceanic whitetip shark species. Tiger Sharks might have also killed and eaten some of the survivors.

The drowning sailor loving Oceanic whitetip shark
Imagine being huddled in a large group of people, injured from the sinking, suffering from exposure or hypothermia, hungry and dying of thirst AND you have to worry about the circling sharks! It must have been terrible.

After 4 days the group of sailors was noticed by a US plane patrolling the area. It turns out the US Navy had not realised the Indianapolis had been sunk!

Perfect shot of a piranha being caught by a crocodile

Piranha III: Revenge of the Crocodiles

Pictures of Crocodiles eating fish, sharks and the odd bird


Crocodiles don't need to spend all day lying in wait for baby elephants to get them selves a feed - all they have do is swim around the river catching fish.

Fish are a good source of protein so it's natural for a crocodile to want to lock his jaws on a tasty morsel of piranha or shark!

Chomp Chomp

Here's a picture of an Australian crocodile eating a bullshark that had the misfortune had to swim up the river where danger lurked....

Meet the one eyed albino shark called Cyclops


albino baby shark one eye

It just seems so likely to be a fake picture or a hoax but it would appear that this cyclops baby shark is the real deal. It's albino to boot so one has to wonder what the odds of this shark coming into being were!

one eye albino shark

The one eyed shark was removed from the stomach of a pregnant mama dusky shark caught by a commercial fisherman near the Cerralvo Island in the Gulf of California. Apparent some shark experts have thoroughly examined the preserved shark and established that its single eye is made of functional optical tissue.  

one eyed shark

"This is extremely rare," shark expert Felipe Galvan Magana of Mexico's Centro Interdisciplinario de Ciencias del Mar said. "As far as I know, less than 50 examples of an abnormality like this have been recorded."

You gotta laugh at the idea of a one eyed albino shark marauding the ocean trying to catch some fish to eat - still they'd probably be an easy catch as they'd probably just crack up with laughter on the spot when they spied him! The reality is this fish would probably not have survived for very long outside the womb.

If you think this  shark is interesting, check out the massive jaws of the tiger fish!

Giant man eating crocodile caught


Here's one big fucking crocodile. Apparently it ate a man. I reckon it ate that man's horse too!

Moongoose eating King Cobras

mongoose eating a cobra
Moongoose 1 King Cobra 0

When I was a little kid at Saint Joseph's Primary, my favourite book in that library was the Rikki Tikki Tavi book by Kipling about the brave moongoose who saved a family from a very horrible Cobra. Rudyard Kipling wrote the book on the Jungle, so we know he probably had his Cobra versus Moongoose knowledge down. Once legend goes as far to suggest he and his mates used to put one of each in a pen and take bets on which would win the battle in a Thunderdome style event... judging by these pictures, I reckon Kipling would have gone for the Moongoose every time!

The Stand off begins!

This above Cobra probably has the biggest balls that have ever graced a Cobra. Here he his like he's King of the Jungle himself, walking up to this pack of Mongoose and simply gone, 'Hey fellas, waz happenin?' I have no idea how this situation ended up but I'd hope the cheeky cobra took a couple of these cute critters down with him! This is all a goos story but I wonder if those fullas are actually meerkats?

What do bats eat?

Bat kissing a frog

Pictures of bats eating frogs and giant spiders


Bat Out of Hell is my favourite album of all time (OK, perhaps second to U2's Achtung Baby) so it was amusing when they played it at work today and I thought, why hasn't Animals Eating Animals featured bats eating things yet?

Perhaps you may have asked your self, what do bats eat?

And so here we are with images of fruit bats and other batty fellows eating things like frogs, watermelon and scarily large centipede.

bat eating cricket

Here's a bat eating a green cricket, and below is a poor spider getting a some fat fangs to his abdomen which almost seems ironic. Don't you think?

spider eaten by bat


This picture below almost looks staged, but it appears to be a bat flying whilst holding a centipede in his mouth.

centipede bat eating

People often think of bats as bloofy thirsty monsters - and you can thank Bram Stoker for that, but the truth is that bats often eat noting but fruit!


And here's a picture of The Great Detective Batman eating his eggs:



Want more? How about this role reversal of a spider eating a bat that it caught in it's web? That must have been an epic food fight!

And now for something completely different, check out these hungry anaconda snakes!

Simply a mouse being eaten by a white heron


Here's a mouse being eaten by a heron. Herons are awesome at fishing.

Heron eats a rabbit, Easter Cancelled


I think Easter may have been cancelled for this very cute little jessica rabbit as she managed to hop his way into this Heron's mouth! He was just hop hop hopping along and then BOOM! the Heron's beak opened wide and snapped him up. Yum!


Gulping down a rabbit. It's no big thing!
 This picture reminds me of the one we've got where the nasty nature hating heron eats some baby ducklings!

Shark takes the bait

Great white shark takes the fishing bait.

So check this out - a huge shark (great white?) lunching on a huge piece of bait. I'm not sure if this is a real photo or not, but it looks pretty awesome. I can't find any context for it, so in the interests of awesomeness, I'm going to have to assume that the shark found the fish lure too tempting and refused to let go as it was wound up to the side of the boat.

I bet when the fishermen saw that, they were all like, 'We're gonna need a bigger boat' and smirked at how clever they were to have made a reference to Jaws and that fact they needed a big boat. Right?

Still interested in sharks? We've got plenty of shark action round Animals Eating Animals. Why don't you dine on these man-eaters, enjoy this crocodile make shark fillets and of course the infamous and NSFW work series of photos of the contents of a shark's stomach having human remains inside!

If you think this shark is interesting, check out the massive jaws of the tiger fish!

Lions pounce on a buffalo


Not really a fair fight is it, three Lions attacking a single buffalo? Lions will eat anything it seems, including giraffes, and zebra. They've even been known to chew on the odd horse's hoove....

Pelican eating a fish


Ever since I read the Giraffe and the Pelly and Me, I have loved Pelicans. When ever I go to the Wellington Zoo I always keep an eye out for their resident Pelican (he lives near the Monkey Island) - so the moment I saw this picture of a fish about to disappear down this happy bird's throat, I knew it was gonna appear on Animals  Eating Animals

6 Lionesses take on a Hippo: Fair Fight?

Lioness vs Hippo: who would win?
This one is almost a fair fight - it's still in favour of the hippopotamus I reckon -though being out of the water probably reduces it's chances against the lionesses somewhat and those b'arches look pretty fucking lean, mean and keen for some tasty hipppo steaks! In fact, I'm totally changing my bet as I just remembered this picture of three lionesses taking on a crocodile, so maybe due to their absolute fearlessness to take on anything, a hippo isn't such a big task after all? No wait, this hippo snapped a crocodile in half with it's jaws! Maybe lion vs hippo is a fair fight after all?
