Watch This Video Of A Crocodile Attacking A Shark
A couple of film makers chartered a fishing boat to sail off the coast of Western Australia and caught some extremely really rare footage of a crocodile hunting a shark. Christian Kennedy and Jadranko Silic said they were aboard the boat on a week-long fishing expedition as it was sailing along the Kimberly coast in early June. Members of the vessel’s crew decided to toss some fish scraps off the boat and as the scraps of filleted fish were being tossed off the back of the boat, the crocodile approached the boat from some nearby mangroves.
Not something you see everyday
In an interview with a Perth newspaper Mr Kennedy said the boat was surrounded by a number of sharks who had begun to circle it in order to eat the fish scraps. If you watch the video, you will see the crocodile waiting amongst the sharks at the back of the boat. Mr Kennedy adds that the huge saltwater crocodile approached the shark feeding frenzy but showed no interest in the fish. Instead it lay waiting patiently and suddenly grabbed a shark as the shark swam up to grab some fish scraps, dragging it away to the nearby mangroves. Mr Kennedy said that everyone who witnessed the brief battle were all pretty amazed and added that he has seen crocodiles and sharks in the wild before but had never seen a crocodile catch a shark before.
