TBRs weekly feature of stories you may have missed and a few favorite photos. The pictures are all of a crocodile attacking a mother elephant in Zambia. The entire event took all of 15 seconds. In the end, the baby elephant stumbled on to the crocodile, causing it to release the mother and retreat into the Nile. A happy ending! (Photos from National Geographic.)
