Crocodiles are powerful apex predators, but it doesn’t mean they always come out on top. Some animals give them a run for their money and sometimes even defeat them. Sometimes they’re just having a bad day and things don’t go as expected. Do you think crocodiles are always successful when they hunt otters? What about big cats? Let’s find out together as we countdown 15 times crocodiles and alligators messed with the wrong opponent.

A troop of baboons can challenge even a big cat if they organize themselves but, in the water, against a crocodile, I don’t know how well they would fair. The attachment between a mother and her newborn baboon is quite profound, and they have a daily pattern that is like ours. Baboons are highly adaptable creatures that can be found in a wide range of settings in Central Africa. In this video, a smaller crocodile has snatched a baby baboon, but its mother jumps the crocodile and doesn’t give up until the crocodile lets the baby go which it eventually does, but the damage is already done. The mother baboon walks away with its baby in its arms, mourning its death. You can see in this video what I mean when I say a troop of baboons can manage to defeat a smaller crocodile.
Not all the baboons are courageous enough to jump the crocodile, but a few of them are gutsier than the others and once they go for it, the others join in the frenzy. This next clip shows a baboon fighting for its life, trying to get out of a crocodile’s jaws. I must say, the baboon’s strength is impressive considering the crocodile’s pressure is immense. The poor baboon gets away, but it looks like it has some serious injuries to deal with and there are no hospitals in the vicinity. Finally, a Grey Langur had its arm trapped in the jaws of a Mugger Crocodile while drinking water. The battle lasted over an hour as the monkey fought for its life. Later, the monkey was able to free its arm from the jaws of its assailant. However, during the fight, the monkey broke its limb, which can be fatal in the wild.
Wild boars are powerful animals that can move quickly. In the event of an attack, adult males' canines may cause severe injuries. However, when going up against a crocodile, the odds are against the wild boar. The crocodile is just too powerful, especially if the confrontation takes place in the water. In our first clip, this crocodile gets out of the water and sneaks up on some baby hogs. It looks like it’s going to be a cakewalk for the crocodile, but the entire family comes to the rescue and prevents the crocodile from approaching the youngsters. In this next clip, a bunch of wild hogs is in the water and an alligator approaches them.
The humans are throwing food close to the alligator as if they want one of the hogs to be ambushed by the alligator. A seriously deranged bunch of humans if you ask me. What had to happen, happens and the alligator attacks the hog, leaving it no chance. I don’t think wild pigs have a chance in hell against a crocodile or alligator attack when they’re in the water. Finally, this warthog pulls a few dances moves a la “James Brown” and manages to escape the grip of this mighty crocodile
