Jan. 18 (UPI) -- An incredibly brave duck managed to survive an extended swim with an intimidating Sumatran tiger at an Australian zoo.

Symbio Wildlife Park in New South Wales shared video of the daring duck as it evaded the tigers clutches while swimming around a small pond.

"World's bravest duck plays with Tiger for fun, and survives!" The zoo wrote.

The cunning tiger stalked the duck for an extended period of time and repeatedly dove in hopes of grasping it in its claws, but the duck regularly slipped away by diving underwater.

Onlookers cheered for the fearless duck as it managed to escape the tiger's attacks time after time.

The tiger eventually lost interest in chasing the duck and climbed out of the water, as the duck savored its victory by bathing in the pond.
