A series of incredible images have shown the moment an adorable, fuzzy little otter attacked a crocodile and then proceeded to eat it.

When images emerged earlier this week of 10ft-long python eating a crocodile whole, people were left shocked – but this otter is something else.

The pictures were taken by Geoff Walsh in Florida's Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge and posted to Facebook by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service earlier this week.

According to a caption posted with the photos, the otter eventually pulled the juvenile gator up onto a bank and began chomping on it "as evidenced by crunching noises."

The post also notes that despite their adorable appearance, otters are often the apex predator in many freshwater habitats, meaning they have no natural predators of their own.
