The lions in the Okavango Delta in Botswana have grown accustomed to their water logged environment.
Unlike typical feline behaviour these cats actually take to water without too much fuss.

I have worked with a few guides in the Delta that have actually witnessed Crocs taking Lions...!
...Must have been a big fight!
