Cat Escapes Becoming Crocodile Lunch by a Whisker [Video]

A fearless cat fought with a crocodile for its own life.

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 zoo’s visitors were doing their best to scare the moggy away, but failed.

But if the reptile supposed 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.

“As 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,” reports The Daily Mail.

The reptile probably understood that he was not that 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: “While we were at the crocodile section we realised a cat had got in and was at the edge of the crocodile pond.”

He went on, adding: “We initially thought the cat was under the impression that it was a rat in the pond.”

“When the crocodile came up in the water we felt sure we were witnessing the last minutes of her life.”

Mr Chaudhary continued: “We couldn’t believe it though when the cat daringly warned the crocodile and then fearlessly slapped it twice.”

“I was just screaming: “Oh my God, oh my God”. We were amazed at what we had seen.”

In the video the couple can be heard crying: “She’s fighting, oh wow, that’s superb. Look at it!”

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 an enormous pack of dolphins.

As The Huffington Post reports, the phenomenon, called a ”super pod,” 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.

“When you see something that is honestly truly beyond belief,” he told reporters.

Passengers of the boat started screaming and pointing when they first saw the school of adult and juvenile common dolphins.

“They were coming from all directions, you could see them from as far as the eye can see,” the captain said. “I’ve seen a lot of stuff out here … but this is the biggest I’ve ever seen, ever.”
