Australian Man Pushes Away Huge Crocodile As It Stalks Him In River
Got a pet that won't stop following you around the house? Chances are you'll really relate to this video. Or at least you might do, if your cat or dog was replaced with a four-metre crocodile:
In the clip above, Australia's Outback Wrangler Matt Wright is calm and collected as he's attempting to clear logs in a Northern Territory waterway with co-worker Tommy Nichols.
That's when a huge croc begins stalking him. While the rest of us might have splashed about to get as far away as we could, Matt has other ideas.
He just stands there, in his overalls, and continues to chat to the camera as he pushes the beast by its snout to move it away from him.
He explains to his 308,000 followers: "We're just trying to get a few logs out of the water here. We're pulling all these logs up over there.
"We're having a bit of a hard time, we have a little friend that has come to visit us... go away. We can't get any work done, he keeps following us around."

After wading over to Tommy, the relentless croc has other ideas and continues to follow. Matt then says: "It's a bit of a pain in the a**e having a crocodile around."
He then addresses the animal, telling it: "Give it up. We're trying to get some work done. Get out. Away. Go away."
You might have seen some people point at their dogs when they have treats right in front of them. They tell them to stay while holding their finger in the air.
Well, the same seems to work for crocodiles, too. Handy to know, right? Matt uses this exact technique as he tells it to 'stay'.
The video has racked up over 170,000 views with fans commenting: "This is the most Australian thing I've watched."
Another added: "Australians literally give no f**ks. I swat flies in America. These blokes are literally swatting crocodiles like they're puppies."
A third remarked: "When you can't get your pet to sit still..."
