As a video camera rolled, a zoo worker tossed a large fish into a muddy crocodile pen while onlookers awaited their chance to witness a feeding in person.
But they saw something else entirely.
One crocodile bypassed the fish and instead clamped down on a fellow croc's limb, eliciting some excited reactions from those assembled behind the chain-link fence.
But folks' apparent wonder over wildlife shifted when the croc began twisting its body — with the other croc's limb still in its mouth.
Then came a scream, some gasps and at least one baby crying.
After a couple of violent twists, the croc chomped off his penmate's limb —
— and apparently gobbled it down with a couple of quick gulps.
The Live Leak version of the video indicates it occurred in Australia.
Here's the clip (content warning: The scene is graphic and may disturb some readers):
