Remember that catchy feel-good song about "the circle of life"? Two decades later we still can't get it out of our heads but now and again, we find some cringy wake-up calls to remind us this happy "circle" is a lot bloodier and NSFW in the wild. Thankfully, Momma Hippo arrives on-scene before hungry lions prematurely turn her baby into a meal!

We're also holding our breath for this doomed waterbuck as a crocodile latches onto his belly. Miraculously, a quick roll is all he needs to shake off the croc to live, eat and breed another day at Kruger National Park!
