A hungry crocodile appears to have bitten off more than it could chew in an attack on a zebra captured on film Thursday at the Masai Mara game reserve in south-western Kenya, The Daily Mail reported.

A group of zebras attempted to cross the Mara river in the reserve when a crocodile leapt from the water, biting the zebra's head.

The stricken animal appears to make a getaway for the shore, but doesn't stand a chance as two more hungry crocodiles lurk menacingly in front of it as well. In the end the zebra was taken down by all three predators, who enjoyed their catch on the shore of the river.

The Masai Mara is one of the most popular reserves in Africa, the Daily Mail reported.

The Mara river is notorious for being infested with crocodiles, and animals struggling in the river's current often fall prey to lurking predators.

Each spring more than one million wildebeest and zebras migrate between the plains of Tanzania's Serengeti and Kenya's Masai Mara. Every year thousands of migrating animals die during the 500-mile trip.
