French tourist Marie-France Grenouillet, 69, snapped these photos of the two fighting crocs along Lake Manze in the Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania.
The Selous Game Reserve is one of the largest animal reserves in the world.
Photos show two Nile crocodiles fighting underwater - one biting the other on the neck.
Marie said: “We left the camp around 6:30am and were driving along the lake, everything was quiet but suddenly our attention turned to some splashes.
“We stopped the car to look at the water and not very far from us we could see two big Nile crocodiles fighting.
“They were biting each other but one quickly appeared to be more dominant.
“The weaker crocodile tried to free itself by turning his tail in a circle but he had no chance of escaping.
“On the internet you usually find pictures of buffalo, hippo, and lion fighting - but very rarely crocodiles.”
Nile crocodiles, found throughout Africa, have the strongest bite of any animal with a bite force of 5000lbf.
They can reach up to 5 metres in length and are considered the second largest extant reptile in the world after saltwater crocodiles.
Marie added: “The skin on a Nile crocodile is thick, but by the neck and mouth it is thinner which is why the dominant croc sunk his teeth there.
“From the picture we can see blood on the teeth of the winner and we don’t know if the other crocodile died."
Marie guessed that the crocodiles were fighting because they were trying to mate with an unavailable female.
