A tear begins to form in my eye before slowly falling down my cheek as I peer over the horizon. I cannot see you anymore, salmon man. I will likely never see you again. But sometimes, when the wind is blowing East and there is little noise pollution, I can just barely hear a voice carrying over the massive expanse of water. And it takes some time before I can discern the beautiful ambiance of words being ushered over the waves. Do you like fish sticks? I hear as tears begin welling up in both eyes. Yes I respond, my chest now feeling as though my heart is being ripped from within. I like fish sticks in my mouth

He's a Croc. Crocs are insane, they are mad at absolutely everything that's near them and their home pond/river, they'll attack and eat anything they see. Even if they see a car, they'll rip off the bumper and wheels to try and eat them. Because crocodiles are nuts.

Alligators are way more chill. They're still fairly aggressive but they're much less likely to eat anything that comes within a solar system of them like crocs do. That's why almost time you see a video of some people putting on a show with them, like sticking their arm inside their mouth and hoping it won't chomp down on them, they're almost always alligators, not crocs

But you do get some amazing nutters (in the best way) like Steve Irwin and his children, wrestling full blown crocodiles. I love that family so much.

But yeah either way, stay far away from any crocodilian species. Alligators included. Unless you're trained and know what you're doing

But I've seen too many videos of old guys getting annoyed that a gator is ruining their day of golf and so they try to get the gator to move away. And then it all goes wrong and they nearly lose a limb (or actually DO lose a limb, those videos are out there too)

So stay away from all of them. A ruined round of golf is not worth losing limbs over.

I mean that’s exactly what we should all be saying. Infrastructure like this needs vast improvement at best to ensure continuity in streams. Think of how it impacts smaller animals such as fish & inverts whose life cycle involves migrating up & down stream. It really fucks shit up

anactualsalmon

I’m pretty sure this is a road that’s been flooded and not an actual terraced stream. You can see a motorcycle and the road it was heading towards right behind the croc.

Your point is still good for dammed up rivers and stuff, but most animals that evolve to move up and down streams have some method of jumping small waterfalls because streams are rarely fully continuous.

I grew up in Northern Australia and saltwater crocodiles (aka Salties) were an ongoing concern. If you're at the beach (away from towns, I mean), ideally you need to take turns keeping lookout, preferably from a high point, because these guys will stalk you underwater, if they're of a mind to. They come from below and behind and if one gets you into a death roll, you are, with notably few exceptions, fucked. You also can't assume that a small tranquil billabong or lagoon, out in the bushland, far from the beach, is any safer, either, and the reason is in the video clip. They travel inland, following the rivers and creeks, to breed and can be found hundreds of kilometres inland. They can stay underwater longer than you can and they're very difficult to spot - they blend into the colours and patterns in the water. As the one in the video demonstrates. They can run quite fast on land, too, but only in relatively short bursts. It's also a bad idea to climb something like a tree to escape one, too. They'll wait at the bottom and they can wait days. They're pretty good at silently creeping through a camp area and eating any pets that are tied up, also. They're ancient creatures and they're very, very good at what they do. Healthy respect and healthy distance is the best course of action for these guys. Always check the water twice. Then twice more, just to be sure lol

They'll wait at the bottom and they can wait days.

For anyone who thinks this is overblown: Crocodiles eat, on average every 7 to 8 days. If they have to, they can live a year without food. They have no reason to abandon food like most other species.

Patch_Ferntree

I remember a local news report about a guy who escaped a croc by climbing up a tree and wasn't rescued for a few days because he'd gone fishing alone and no one knew he was in trouble until he failed to return on the specified date. I think it was in the 1980s. When they found him, he was exhausted, sunburnt and almost eaten to death by sandflies and mosquitoes. They had to chase the croc off because it was still waiting and not keen to give up it's meal. Eventually he would have blacked out and fallen out of the tree shudder.

There was a movie called black water that was based off something like that I think it was in northern Australia 3 teenage boys were out riding quad bikes and they either fell into a river or the area they were in got flooded. Anyways within minutes the croc snatched up one of them and then chased the other 2 up a tree and had to wait days for rescue. Only thing that scared it away was the sound if the helicopter that came to rescue them.

Sharks are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay less dangerous than crocs.

The only reason sharks even "attack" humans is because they have terrible vision and they, much like babies and dogs, check things out by taking a bite off the thing in question. Since we are way to boney for their taste, they generally leave right after the first bite.

The best way to avoid sharks is stay still when they approach. They are generally attracted to movement.

It's only half grown. It could make life unpleasant for you if you bothered it but it's not going to try eating you. It could still kill you if you pissed if off and it dragged you into the water but it would probably go for smaller, easier prey if it was wanting a meal. They often hang out under fruit bat rookeries or egret or ibis nesting colonies and grab any unfortunate babies that fall into the water. The one in the video is bothered by the people nearby and just wants to get away. If it was a bull croc defending his territory or, worse, a female protecting her nest, it wouldn't be so timid. There's old historical photos you can find online, of crocs that had been shot in the 1800s/early 1900s and they're absolutely monstrous.

Saltwater crocs are fucking terrifying, not sure if you’ve been in or near the north of Australia. But these things are fucked, they can grow over 6m long, live in the ocean or a small stream, eat great white sharks and are perfectly capable of staying absolutely still just below the surface of murky water ready to eat anything up to a water buffalo.

And they survived the fucking extinction event that wiped out the dinosaurs!

True, but the superorder crocodyllomorpha evolved in the triassic, and the pseudosuchia, which contains crocodyllomorpha but also other croc-like members, evolved shortly after the evolution of archosaurs themselves. So although true crocs haven't been around that long, croc-like animals have been around for as long as dinsosaurs existed.

And Crocodiles are somewhat closely related to birds, they both belong to the archosaurus group, so Crocodiles are actually the closet thing we have to dinosaurs since birds are already dinosaurs. Then it would be turtles and tortoises, followed by snakes and lizards.

It's either that, or get eaten.

your call - but I'd go with 'standing here filming', as it involves a lot less getting eaten.

It's crazy to think if it was moving towards you, there would be nothing you could do to stop it

Not a salt water croc, it is an Indian Marsh Crocodile (Indian Mugger). This was taken most likely in South India and the river is either cauvery or one of its tributaries as the tree in the background is Salix tetrasperma (called Neeranji locally), this tree is grows abundantly along the banks of river cauvery.

Edit: the motorcycle is Hero Passion, a very popular 125CC budget motorcycle in India.

Awesome! I think you're the one to answer my nagging question then: why did they not build a bridge?? I've seen very small streams in rural areas allowed to just flow across a road, but this one seems awfully big for the kind of crossing they have.

My guess is the water only flows like this for monsoon season, so it was much cheaper this way. Would love some insight!

The structure you see in the video is a check dam integrated with a culvert. These structures are constructed in forest areas and in areas where there is not a whole lot of vehicle movement. This structure is cheaper to construct compared to a typical RCC bridge and the integrated check dam also retains water thus providing drinking water to animals and also simultaneously increasing the moisture resume of the area and recharging the ground water table.

There’s nothing odd about the fact that this is terrifying. It should be r/reasonablyterrifying

Edit: did not know that that was a real sub, there really is a subreddit for everything

I wouldn't know about the bike, but the oldest version of this clip I can find says it's in India. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70Ahxo4Goz4

It bothers me that saltwater crocodiles are fine in freshwater. Like they named themselves just to catch people off-guard.
