Can you name me some land animals that can kill a crocodile?
 
I am looking for land mammals that can kill a full grown Saltwater Crocodile with ease.

Can you name me at least 5?

a full grown salt water crocodile is a pretty vicious
animal.

i have once seen a hippopotamus killing one in a documentary. the croc was crushed by the strength of the teeth of that hippo!

An Elephant could trample one to death without too much difficulty, and a Hippo could likely kill one with its devastating bite (if you consider a Hippo a land mammal, that is). A Rhino could possibly kill one by spearing it with its horn. Lions are known to kill Nile crocodiles on occasion, and Tigers to kill mugger crocodiles, so it's possible they could kill a saltwater crocodile if they came into contact with it, but I wouldn't say they could do so 'with ease'. A human with the right weapon can kill just about anything, if that counts.

Cape Buffalo can be a force to reckon with. They spear lions when they can, actually they are known to hunt lions, kill before being killed.

To add to previous points, I couldn't imagine a Crocodile doing much against Polar bear and/or Grizzly Bear. More intelligence plus ridiculous strength.
