Clash of the titans: Lions take on crocodile in epic fight

Rare footage has been captured of a battle between a crocodile, a lion and two lionesses in Kenya.

The video shot by Kai Banks at the Samburu National Reserve shows how a trio of lionesses take on the enormous reptiles on the edge of a sandbank.

Banks wrote on YouTube:

My family and I managed to catch an extremely rare event on camera during our recent trip to the Samburu National Reserve in Kenya.

We knew it was something special when our guide's mouth dropped open as soon as the lions jumped onto the crocodile.

The titans were said to be fighting over an elephant carcass nearby.

The crocodile is then seen managing to escape in stills at the end of the footage, but not without a fair few scrapes.
