Lucky zebra earned his stripes by fighting off a vicious crocodile attack.
A herd of zebras had been enjoying a refreshing drink at a waterhole in Kenya. When a group of crocodiles crept up on them.
Only narrowly missing its prey with its razor sharp teeth.
Instinctively the zebra lashes out. Zebra kicked its back hoof straight into the face of the crocodiles.
Photographers Laurent Renaud and Dominique Haution captured the watery war.
Laurent said: “It was all very dramatic.
About 100 zebras were trying to cross the river and they just stopped for a quick drink.
Some zebras have seen a crocodile before, but many just think they’re logs.
Fortunately they always remain apprehensive while drinking which meant all of them got away safely.
At the end, the crocodiles were furious – they were angrily baring their teeth from across the river.
