These wildebeest had a lucky escape when a hungry crocodile pounced as they tentatively crossed its path.  The herd were migrating in search of food when they found themselves on the menu at the Mara River in Masai Mara, Kenya.<br />
<br />
Photographers Yva Momatiuk and John Eastcott from New York, USA, captured the action shot with bated breath as they watched the predator strike.  But the four-legged wildebeests, also known as gnu, miraculously escaped unscathed. <br />
