A warthog found itself stuck between a pack of hungry jackals and — unbeknownst to the animal — a fierce crocodile hiding in its watering hole.

The warthog positioned itself just inside the water, where it thought it would be safe from the jackals. In the video, the stealthy crocodile can be seen sneaking up slowly beside the warthog, waiting for more than a minute to make its move.

Just as the warthog goes to take another sip of water, the croc strikes with devastating force and drags its meal into the water.
