A very rare and epic encounter between a mugger crocodile and a gigantic Russell's Viper, In Yala National Park, Sri Lanka. The Crocodile seems very pleased with his catch in this brief moment when it's eyes met the lens, just before thrashing its victim against the water, in a breathtaking and captivating display of power.
