If travelling into Crocodile country in Australia be VERY aware of the dangers of swimming there.

This is from Darwin, Nothern Territory, Australia.

A monster 5.5m saltwater croc named Brutus gave a boatload of tourists a moment they will never forget south of Darwin, last week.

And yes, it's real.

NT News photographer Katrina Bridgeford took this amazing photograph of Brutus, a 5.5m saltwater croc on the Adelaide River, just over 100km south of Darwin, last week.


Link to it. http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/national/astonishing-picture-of-55m-saltwater-crocodile-leaping-from-the-water-is-brutus-a-tourist-favourite-in-nt/story-e6freooo-1226092897186

Always be aware of the dangers Downunder, listen to locals, they really do know.

I am staying WAAYY far away from that thing!
It's bigger than the people in the boat, and probably the boat too!

Half way across the planet might not be far enough!

For perspective 5.5 meters = 18.0446194 feet. Or 3 times the height of a six foot tall man, not counting overall mass.
