A waterbuck narrowly escaped being eaten alive three times, after being chased by a pack of wild dogs, sniffed out by a crocodile, and attacked by a hippo.

The antelope and its herd had been chased by a pack of ravenous wild dogs, before taking to a nearby waterhole for safety.

However, the antelope was not alone, as a crocodile lurked beneath the waters, ready to attack.

The antelope’s troubles were only about to get worse, as an agitated hippo opened its jaws ready to take a bite out of him.

After numerous attempts trying to attack the antelope, the hippo gave up, allowing the poor animal to run off to safety.

The photos were taken by Daryl Dell, a safari guide, at Ngala Private Game Reserve, South Africa, after he went on the hunt to find a pack of wild dogs.

Daryl, 39, said “The hippo lurched and attacked the waterbuck calf with aggression and tried to bite it, probably because it was in their territory.

“A raft of hippopotamus had already been agitated by the playful and cheeky nature of the dogs, who had earlier taunted the hippos, and one individual clearly had enough.

“It made its intentions clear by storming the scene and causing a commotion, which scared off the crocodile and saw the dogs slam on their brakes.

“A standoff ensued for while with the waterbuck in the safety of the water, the wild dogs finally got bored and moved away into the woodland, allowing the waterbuck to escape.”
