This is the moment when a fearless honey badger stood up for 30 minutes in a cruel tug of war with a jackal, and the victor appeared.

Amazing images show the hungry duo fighting out what appears to be a ground squirrel grabbed in their jaws and each tries to pull the new murder out of the grip of the other.

After an epic skirmish, the exhausted black-backed jackal finally concedes to his surprisingly fierce and determined opponent – making the tie enjoy his prize.

Elisabeth Ann Moss, 74, captured the images during a visit to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park on 24 August.

Grandmother of 15 Mrs. Moss, a retired nurse, said: “While standing by the bird's skin, a badger had caught a ground squirrel and was quickly chased by a jackal who wanted a portion, if not the entire meal.

& # 39; The tie was fearless – they are known for their strong jaws and sharp claws. He held onto the prey he had captured and nothing would let him go.

& # 39; He rolled, he turned and his teeth were stuck. The tug of war exhausted the jackal, who was persistently exhausted after more than 30 minutes.

& # 39; The tie had finished feeding with what was rightfully due. & # 39;

Elisabeth from South Africa, who has been photographing wildlife in the wild for 20 years, said: & I enjoyed my amateur photography, but really only as a reference when I look back on people and places and on flora and fauna.

& # 39; Surprises happen all the time and every day is different. You learn to read animal behavior. I watch and learn something new every day.

& # 39; I learned that you have to go out early, not be in a hurry, sit by water holes or in the shade of a tree and be patient.

& # 39; (This image is) the best animal photo I have ever taken, I have had a great response. & # 39;
