This crocodile bit off more than it could chew when it grabbed the trunk of a full-grown elephant. The elephant was injured and the crocodile survived, but the crocodile was lucky. There is one case of a crocodile's body being found in a tree after an enraged elephant was done with it. There is another case of a hippo biting a croc in half, which I'm mentioning not just to show off that I remember this kind of trivia, but that we should remember in studying nature that it's not neatly divided between predator and prey. It's dangerous all around.
