However, here we bring a video of a deer that was lucky enough to escape from the jaws of death by taking a ‘leap of life’ and beating a crocodile in the mid of a river.

As seen in the video, the deer is seen taking leaps continuously inside the river. It tirelessly swims to cross the river. A group of people travelling on a boat captured the incident and reacted to the efforts of the deer to get a new lease of life.

However, when the video zooms in a crocodile is seen following the deer. However, it is submerged in the water and hard to identify. 

The crocodile follows it fast; however, the deer was quite far away. But, the deer slowed down after swimming for a while. The crocodile grabs the deer from behind. But, the brave deer instantly jumps high before the crocodile could clutch it properly. The lucky deer escaped from the crocodile’s jaws and speeds up its movement. 

Soon the deer reached the river bank and disappeared into the grassland. The crocodile followed it till the bank but to its bad luck, its prey had escaped.

The video shared on Twitter by Clement Ben IFS has been viewed over 81K times and has been liked by netizens. Even many went on to express their happiness over the lucky escape of the deer.
