Snap by Timana

This photo was taken on the Adelaide river in the Northern Territory, Australia.
Crocodiles have an amazing power to propel themselves out of the water using their muscular tail enabling them to snatch animals from the banks of the river.

    Fabulous capture, I hope you were far away with a zoom lens… I know they can jump and run quite fast 40mph for short distances. This one looked like he was after something.

    This is a truly awesome capture, well done.
    It does worry me a bit that the tourist boats encourage the crocs to jump like this. I imagine myself out fishing in my dinghy and one of these beasts jumping in with me.

    Thanks for all your comments. This was taken from an enclosed boat with open windows. It is a little scary how close the boat enables you to get to these wild creatures and how high they can jump. A reminder not to get too close to the water in croc infested areas!
