These incredible nature photos show the cruel and brutal realities of the animal kingdom.

Mother Nature can be a harsh mistress, and nothing demonstrates this reality better than a crocodile cannibalizing one of its own. The Queensland Australia National Parks Facebook posted these photos of an especially large crocodile killing and eating one of its own.

The photos were taken at Rinyirru National Park. The post said the attack happened in close proximity to one of their signs warning about the dangers of crocodiles. The National Park isn’t sure if these are saltwater of freshwater crocs or one of both.

It looks like the poor smaller crocodile was done in by a single vicious head swing. He never really had a chance.

What a spectacular photo sequence! It’s nice to have a reminder sometimes of just how cruel and unforgiving nature can sometimes be.
