Crocodile And Shark Fight To Death In Australia

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Tourists looked on in shock as a three-legged, 18ft saltwater

crocodile fought a bull shark in a titanic face-off. One of

Australia's most famous crocodiles, Brutus, was spotted wrestling with

the creature between its jaws on the banks of the Adelaide River in

Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory. The shark appeared to

be no match for the 80-year- old reptile who, despite missing a front

leg and most of his teeth, had the the sea creature firmly in his

grasp. Andrew Paice was on an hour- long wildlife cruise with his

family and said his seven-year- old daughter was left "awestruck". "So

were the rest of the people (on board) including the guide – he had

never seen it before either and he had been there for about 30 years.

He was so excited," he 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." Local newspaper reports on Tuesday

suggested Brutus emerged the victor.
