Crocodiles Snatches Bats Right Out Of Mid Air

Croc bat

Yep, never touching salt water ever again.

Typically, my only run ins with alligators occur whenever I’m playing golf at the beach, and I see one off in the distance in a pond.

Even being a good many yards away, it still gives me cold chills to think about how you could be going to retrieve your golf ball from the water, and next thing you know a gator leaps out and you’re a goner.

With that being said, I really hate to think about everything an alligator or crocodile’s prey goes through on a daily basis.

And in this case, the crocodile’s prey is the bat.

The scene all went down in Australia, and was captured in part of the recording of BBC’s Seven Worlds One Planet.

This specific species of bats are the flying fox.

As you can see, a massive group of the bats are flying over a river, just trying to get from point A to point B.

Everything appears to be going smooth, until one of the bats flying over gets snatched up by a crocodile that was lurking in the waters below.

Needless to say, the bat could have never seen this coming, and was just complete unfortunate timing.

But seriously, it’s pretty impressive watching how quick the crocodile’s reaction time is. It dialed it up perfectly.
