Photos: Zebra Ripped Apart By 40 Hungry Crocodiles

This is the horrifying moment more than 40 crocodiles ripped a zebra limb from limb in a river in Kenya's Maasai Mara national park.

The helpless animal was descended upon as it tried to cross the water during its migration as part of a heard of 300 across the plains.

As it stepped into the water a pack of powerful crocodiles rushed to the surface and dragged the animal down.

The Nile crocodiles - which are capable of delivering two-and-a-half tons of power through their jaws - devoured the zebra in seconds, with one of its legs and its head being torn clean off.

French photographer Jean-Francois Raux, 70, who was visiting Kenya captured graphic images of the zebra's brief struggle with the reptiles.
