Crocodile strike

Nile crocodiles strike their targets suddenly from murky water just 30cm deep. A Tornado camera filmed 1,000 frames per second to give this sequence its excruciating detail. The action is slowed down 40 times and the resulting few seconds-worth of film (around 16Gb) has to be downloaded straight on to a laptop before anything else can be filmed.
