Shark no match for crocodile

A 4.5 metre saltwater crocodile has gone head-to-head with a shark only metres from a boatload of surprised fishermen.

The attack occurred 100km east of Darwin when the croc started devouring the 1m shark only metres away from fishermen on the Wildman River.

“There was not a whole lot of sound,” said Craig Van Lawick who was aboard the commercial barramundi vessel at the time of the attack last week.

“All we could hear was the crunching sound.”

Luckily another fisherman on board, Anthony Capogreco, reached for his camera and captured the animals in their brief but dramatic battle. (NTNEWS)
