Croc and shark go head-to-head in titanic battle

It sounds like a conversation you would have down the pub – who would win out of a shark and a crocodile? But these incredible pictures show the moment when the two fierce creatures came head to head for real. Tourist Andrew Paice was on an hour-long wildlife cruise on the Adelaide River with his partner and seven-year-old daughter on Tuesday.

They spotted the unbelievable scrap between the huge 5.5-metre (18-feet) male Croc known as Brutus and the bull shark. Mr Paice said: “It was on the way back to the jetty, we went past Brutus again, he was up on the bank. “As we were going past, we noticed that there was a fin. We thought it was a barramundi (fish) or something and the guide took the boat in for a closer look and lo and behold – it was a shark.” Brutus, who is thought to be about 80 years old and is missing a front leg and most of his teeth, is well known in the area, and the Northern Territory News described the battle as “Jaws v Claws”.

Speculation is that the prospect of a fish dinner was tasty revenge for a croc who was thought to have lost his limb to one of the sharks who inhabit nearby waters, although others claim he lost it to an even bigger Croc. The Northern Territory News said Brutus won the titanic struggle with the shark, but Mr Paice said he wasn’t so sure. “When we went past the first time the croc was lying there with the shark in its mouth,” he said. “When we pulled the boat in closer it slid back into the water. And when the shark, or the mouth of the croc, hit the water, the shark started to thrash around. “So it was certainly still alive. We couldn’t see any blood anywhere,” he said, noting that Brutus had only few teeth left. “It may have got away; it may have got eaten – we don’t know. He didn’t put that display on for us unfortunately.”
