With a male lion, they rarely do, but are perfectly capable. When they fight crocs on land, even a single lioness would win every time, whereas when they fight in water, a croc has a better chance of winning against even more than one lioness at a time.

They coexist but are not friends. Young crocs may be taken by lions but large crocs can kill a lion.

In Africa are more people killed by crocodiles or by lions?

Crocodiles. This is because a lot of villiages depend on the lake or any other water source. The problem is that those bodies of water are the crocodiles homes or hunting grounds. Also, crocodiles grow HUGE in Africa because of where they live. It's so large and full of food and water to live off of. So the more a crocodile eats the more they grow. It's like us, the better the diet the better the health. For most crocodiles the larger ones are more healthier. The reason why it's not much of lions is because the people would have to travel in the middle of where ever they are, like go on a safari and then walk into the lions territory. Lions will attack if starving to death(and it's the last thing for them to do to survive) or if they feel like they are being threatened (males would attack if they feel like you are trying to show that you are stronger)
