Christine Crocodile is always looking for food for her hungry family, but she can't move very fast on land. She decides to ask her neighbor, Bixby for advice and maybe a little help because she is tired of eating fish for every meal. Bixby likes a good practical joke as well as anyone especially the hyenas and he decides to play a trick on Christine. He chases an antelope towards the water but snatches it from her at the last second jumping into a tree at the water's edge. What is going to happen when Christine realizes that he has taken her mouth-watering meal of fresh antelope from her? Will the tree at the river's edge hold him safe above Christine as she tries to reach the crafty cougar?
