Description

A crocodile is in the process of swallowing a lion stuck head first in its mouth while a man lying on the ground watches at some distance.
The caption reads in the German edition: Der Kopf des einen steckte nun in dem Schlunde des andern, und sie strebten mit aller Macht, sich voneinander loszumachen.
