Ordinarily, you wouldn’t take a bet on a house cat fighting a crocodile. (We’re pretty sure that’s illegal anyway.) But in this case, you’d be wrong: a white-and-ginger cat somehow wandered into the crocodile enclosure at a zoo in Jaipur, India. One croc sneaked its way to the edge of the water and prepared to snatch its innocent prey, but the cat was having none of it.

When onlookers were certain that they would witness the last moments of the helpless cat after they tried unsuccessfully to scare it away, the little fellow bared its teeth, hissed at the crocodile and slapped the reptile with its paw, not once, but twice.

The crocodile, now with scratches on its snout, gave up and retreated back into water.

According to the Daily Mail, the entire battle was filmed by zoo visitors Manu Chaudhary, 25 and her husband Vishal, 26. The couple was celebrating their first wedding anniversary.
