A lucky cat surely has its nine lives as it managed to escape from a crocodile’s jaws.
It definitely was a good day for a ginger and white cat, who appeared in the crocodile enclosure at a zoo in Jaipur, India.
The cat came face to face with a croc at the water’s edge and zooâs visitors were doing their best to scare the moggy away, but failed.
But if the reptile supposedÂ it was dinner time and the cat would be its helpless victim, it had a swift bump back to reality after the fearless kitty scratches it not once, but twice, on the snout.
âAs the croc poised to snap up the unusual prey in its jaws, the cat finally spotted the danger in the water to the relief of zoo-goers who assumed it would flee,â reports The Daily Mail.
The reptile probably understood that he was notÂ thatÂ hungry as he thought before, and retreated back into the water.
The unequal battle was captured by Manu Chaudhary, 25, and her husband Vishal, 26, from Southall, Middlesex, who were flew to India to celebrate their first wedding anniversary by taking in the sights of country.
Mr Chaudhary, who lives in New Delhi, India, said: âWhile we were at the crocodile section we realised a cat had got in and was at the edge of the crocodile pond.â
He went on, adding: âWe initially thought the cat was under the impression that it was a rat in the pond.â
âWhen the crocodile came up in the water we felt sure we were witnessing the last minutes of her life.â
Mr Chaudhary continued: âWe couldn’t believe it though when the cat daringly warned the crocodile and then fearlessly slapped it twice.â
âI was just screaming: “Oh my God, oh my God”. We were amazed at what we had seen.â
In the video the couple can be heard crying: âShe’s fighting, oh wow, that’s superb. Look at it!â
It seems like this week is rich for such amazing news. The story about the unusual fight comes a few days after people became eye-witnesses of another rare and amazing sighting.
Tourists off the coast of San Diego appeared to be lucky as they saw a rare spectacle, when the cruise boat they were on ran into anÂ enormous pack of dolphins.
AsÂ The Huffington PostÂ reports, the phenomenon, called aÂ âsuper pod,âÂ occurred across 7 miles of the California coastline.
Capt. Joe Dutra of Hornblower Cruises confirmed later that the pod was more than seven miles long and five miles wide.
âWhen you see something that is honestly truly beyond belief,â he told reporters.
Passengers of the boat started screaming and pointing when they first saw the school of adult and juvenile common dolphins.
âThey were coming from all directions, you could see them from as far as the eye can see,â the captain said. âIâve seen a lot of stuff out here âŚ but this is the biggest Iâve ever seen, ever.â
