The Thomson gazelle is one of the most nimble and fastest antelopes in Africa. Sadly, we see that speed and agility isn’t enough to stay alive, while swimming across the Mara river in Kenya. As you see, this antelope didn’t stand a chance against this African Nile crocodile.
One of Africa’s fastest and most agile antelope, the Thomson’s gazelle, finds itself out of its depths as it attempts to swim the Mara river in Kenya. Unfortunately, this little gazelle is dragged down to a watery gave by a massive demon of the deep, Africa’s Nile crocodile. Every year, over a million wildebeest, zebra, and antelope migrate to Kenya’s Maasai Mara in search of greener pastures—but not without being hunted by the larger carnivores.
