According to photographer Robert Mooney, who took the photo in The Pantanal (a tropical wetland in Brazil), the cow appeared to walk directly towards the crocodiles (caimans) after wandering away from its herd in search of food. He said that he, "was amazed the cow dared to stroll among the crocs with such apparent ease."
