Conflicts Of Nature : Conflicts In A River (Wildlife Documentary)

  • Published on Apr 15, 2017
  • At the foot of Uganda's roaring Murchison falls live two eternal enemies : the monitor and the Nile crocodile. Despite the crocodile's reign of terror within the river, the stealthy monitor is master of the banks where it steals and devours their vulnerable eggs. The first days of the young Nile crocodile are a series of nightmares : if it survives the monitor's attacks, it must avoid the swooping attacks of perch and eagles. Once adult, it becomes the undisputed master of the river and seeks to devour its erstwhile enemies one by one.

      Lenny : nature is in balance. If no predators kept crocs in check, the crocs would over-populate.

      @ @john jerman As a secondary definition, sure, although I've never heard it used as such. Strictly speaking, a 'career' is any ongoing process. secondarily and most commonly it is applied to ones work, as in a job. If I'm not making sense to you, that's OK with me, you may continue with thinking however you'd like.

    Pretty good life... being a croc. All your long life you spend sunbathing and in refreshing swims. Don't have to worry about putting food on the table every damn day-one solid meal and you can go for several months without any. You don't even have to worry about evolution-no need to evolve further. LOL

    I don't know where this guy got his info from, but the croc is not the king of the river, that title goes to the hippo! And hippos most definitely will mess with a croc, so again, wrong! I'm not trying to take anything away from the croc, but if you are going to inform people, then do it properly! Even some of the biggest, badest crocs in the world won't mess with a hippo! I also thought crocs were not cold blooded?

      personal opinions are not FACTS mate - Normally, crocodiles eat hippo calves, crocodiles have the instinct to attack hippos. - if you would use your PV for more than just a typewriter you would find that "hippos" don't normally attack crocs -

    I like these documentaries, however; this constant referencing of unnatural measurements is very irritating to those who understand why time, distance, frequency, volume and mass cannot be separated. Every clock has 12 numbers not 10. There are 24 hours in a day not 20. There are 60 seconds in a minute, not 50. There are 60 minutes in an hour not 50. There are 12 months in a year not 10. The moon is 2,160 miles in diameter and the sun is 864,000 miles in diameter etc. These numbers relate to 432, 216, 144, 108, 72, 36, 12, 6 Every ancient monument on Earth has measurements created around inches, feet, and miles. It's much deeper than I can go into here but it just has to be said that people need to educate themselves and stop accepting what the elite establishment keeps pushing on us.

There's also vid of a male ele rolling a mother hippo literally like a bowling ball. One on one, no land/river animal stands a chance, save those with venom or us humans with weapons..
