This location is very good for causing different animals to attack each other. Either get them to chase your hominid or Intimidate ico 128.png intimidate them near each other and they will perform attacks on each other.

To get the crocodiles out of the water, you can either put yourself in direct and immediate danger and hope to run faster then the crocodile chasing you or you could try to intimidate them away from the water.

Since there is a single python but usually multiple Hyenas, you should try to first make the Python kill a Hyena to get the Astute Dominator of the Rock Python Evolution Feat and then make the Hyena kill the Python for the Astute Dominator of the Hyena Evolution Feat.

Due to the large number of potential SenseIcon Carcass.png carcasses that you can create in this area with all of the hostile enemies from hunting, you should have plenty of SenseIcon HardBone.png Hard Bone to equip your entire clan (if you so desire). While it is not as good as a SenseIcon SharpStick.png Sharpened Stick to kill an animal, it can be re-used an unlimited times.
