Watch unexpected twists and turns of nature in the ‘Battle of Kruger' made famous by YouTube.

In early 2007, what would become one of YouTube's hottest videos was posted – The Battle at Kruger. The clip captures an amazing predator encounter as lions and a crocodile fight over a buffalo calf at a South African watering hole. Shot by an amateur videographer, it documents a never-before-filmed tournament of survival. Enlisting the help of wildlife experts, National Geographic deconstructs this battle, revealing how lions and crocodiles hunt and how buffalos may survive – against all odds.
