Description: Lone zebra crossing the river gets caught taken down by crocodiles

Story from behind the lens: As the zebras gathered to cross the river, it seemed that there was a debate about who, if any, would cross first. On lookers could see the obvious danger of the awaiting crocs. One lone zebra forged ahead. Was this a sacrifice for the remaining dazzle waiting to cross, we wondered? The zebra made it half way across without capture, we remained optimistic but a massive surge of water followed, throwing the zebra into the air before pulling it below water. With the zebra surrounded by more than 20 feasting crocodiles, the remaining dazzle of zebras were able to cross without incident resulting in applause from the onlookers. We will never know if the lone zebra was altruistic in his sacrifice or just oblivious to the danger that laid ahead.
