A VERY RARE AND EPIC ENCOUNTER BETWEEN A MUGGER CROCODILE AND A GIGANTIC RUSSELL'S VIPER, IN YALA NATIONAL PARK, SRI LANKA. THE CROCODILE thrashes the viper against water, IN A BREATHTAKING AND CAPTIVATING DISPLAY OF POWER and superiority, as water movements testify to the sheer intensity of the battle.
