Ritik Raj

Lions: As apex predators, lions have the ability to attack and kill crocodiles, particularly those that approach the water's edge.

Tigers: In regions where their habitats overlap, tigers have been seen hunting crocodiles when they encroach on their territory.

Jaguars: In regions where their natural ranges overlap, jaguars have been seen hunting and killing crocodiles due to their exceptional hunting skills.

Big Pythons: Some large python species, such as the Burmese python, have been known to ambush and ensnare small to medium-sized crocodiles, which they subsequently eat whole.

Elephants: When there is territorial overlap near water sources, elephants have a history of acting aggressively towards crocodiles, putting the young of the species in danger.

Piranhas: While they do not kill adult crocodiles on purpose, piranhas will sometimes eat the carcasses of sick or dead crocodiles.

Hippos: Anger or territorial disputes have seldom resulted in violent attacks between hippos and crocodiles.
