When Prey Attacks

Our planet's mightiest predators don't always get their own way — the tables can be turned on these mighty hunters when the underdog fights back. An enormous Nile crocodile learns the harsh lesson that hippos aren't to be messed with, and a lion — the so-called "king of the jungle" — pays dearly after messing with a buffalo. A shark is dispatched by a giant octopus, while a gazelle teaches a cheetah a painful lesson. Other animals find ways of benefiting from their predators' natural weapons — a feisty crab arms itself with stinging sea anemones and in Madagascar, lemurs use toxic millipedes to repel insects and even get high!
