Jumping into murky river or lake waters is a huge no-no for me because of one terrifying reason: Crocodiles. I swear, this animal is included in my top scariest animals list. I know better than to underestimate what this quiet reptile can do.
According to National Geographic, crocodiles have the greatest bite force ever directly measured for living animals. Its stomach acid is potent enough to digest bones. Suffice it to say, crocodiles are cold-blooded killing machines.
See what I mean?
Of course, as long as it stays in the water where it belongs, I feel safe. But now I hear stories about crocs who can “fly” – as in propel themselves out of the water.
This video shared on Instagram by Trevor Frost, a National Geographic photographer and Eddie Bauer adventure guide, is something that can make me wet my pants. The mean-looking croc was eyeing its bait (probably meat) being hovered around a feet above its head. Then slowly, the damn thing rose from the water, trying to take a bite. Its tail was swishing from side to side, which was probably the “propeller”.
Okay. I’m so not going near a river from now on.
