Dear God Almighty! Crocodiles Can Jump Out of the Water! Video!

By Robert Paul Reyes

A nature photographer shared a video on Instagram of an Australian crocodile using its muscular tail to propel itself out of the water to grab bait dangling from a rope.


Crocodiles are killing machines; they can kill you when you are swimming in a body of water or even if you are on land near a swamp.

But I was under the false impression that a person on a boat was safe from crocodiles, who knew that they could jump out of the water?

Crocodiles have very good night vision, an excellent sense of smell, acute hearing, and a mouth tailor-made for biting off heads, legs and arms; it`s unfair that they also have the ability to leap out of the water.

I`m going to stay the hell away from Florida and Australia!
