The American crocodile is the most widespread of the crocodile species that inhabit the Americas. It can be found – far and wide – from Southern Florida and Southern Mexico, to Peru and Venezuela. Most of this crocodile’s diet consists of fish – and here we have an incredible sequence showing one croc trying to subdue and eat a large game fish not 15 feet away from the photographer.

This series of pictures was shot by the ocean in Corcovado National Park in Costa Rica, where crocodiles and terns were catching their dinner in the open sea. The crocs – which can swim at speeds of up to 18 miles per hour (29 km/h) – were hunting by facing incoming waves with their jaws wide open, then snapping them shut at the right moment! Here we see the enormous beast dragging itself and the fish out of the water and onto the beach.
