Crocodiles,zabras and wildebeests

The wildebeests and zebras do this annual migration by following the same routes. The biggest challenge on this migration is when it comes to crossing the Mara river. When in the river, they are totally helpless and this tend to be the harvesting season for the crocodiles when lots of these animals fall prey to the crocodiles.
