It wasn’t spidey-sense that saved a thirsty warthog recently…but it was definitely something. The hyper-aware animal was able to jump out of the way of a hungry crocodile while sipping water from a pond. Despite the animal’s shockingly fast – and extremely stealth – attack.
At first, all things seem serene in the Nature is Metal Instagram post. The warthog appears relaxed and content as it sips water just off the pond’s shoreline. However, as with areas in the wild, there is danger lurking just below the surface. And soon, the warthog will be running for its life.
This Thirsty Warthog Barely Escapes with Its Life
As the Instagram video begins, we see absolutely no sign of danger as the warthog takes a short break for a drink of water. However, it isn’t long before some company makes itself very known, lunging out of the water hoping to catch the warthog in its impressive jaws.
“Warthog dodges a split second attack,” notes the caption written alongside the jaw-dropping Insta post. However, the post continues to note that this female warthog was able to escape with her life. But barely.
