The plucky lioness took on the lurking reptile whilst the rest of her Pride crossed the river in safety. But the brave big cat was lucky to escape with only a cut lip after the crocodile fought back. Photographer Pia said 'the whole attack was over in the blinking of an eye, and it was only when I downloaded my pictures later that I saw what had happened'.
