Giant Crocodile And Bull Shark Seen In Water Near Popular Swimming Spot
| Last updated
The video was filmed near Ivanhoe Crossing in Kununurra, Western Australia, a picturesque tourist attraction on the lower Ord River.
Caravanners Chelsea Wood and Bryce Connole had been fishing and set up their drone to see what was lurking in the water.
They were shocked to spot not just a large bull shark just metres away from them, but also a gigantic salt water crocodile.
In the clip, the shark can be seen swimming up to the crocodile before quickly changing direction - supposedly having clocked just how much it's dwarfed by its would-be opponent.
The crocodile, meanwhile, floats calmly, presumably awaiting its next meal patiently.
It then casually swims off in another direction, as if this had been the plan all along. I'm sure avoiding the giant croc in front of it was merely coincidental...
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Chelsea said the area is a popular swimming spot for locals.
"We didn't realise crocodiles or sharks were in the area as locals are always in the water," she said, adding that there were children in the water nearby at the time.
"I think this was a rare sighting but probably good for people to see what's lurking around the waters in the Kimberley Region."
Chelsea and Bryce shared the footage on their Instagram page, @caravanadventureaus, where they share their adventures 'caravanning Australia full time'.
Posting the video last month, they wrote: "Just a couple friends hanging out in Kununurra. Bull Shark and Salt Water Croc."
It soon went viral, with many people commenting to say how massive the crocodile looks - and how they wouldn't be heading over for a swim in the river anytime soon.
One person wrote: "Wouldn't want to be in between them lol. The croc looks huge!!"
Someone else said: "Remind me not to go swimming there."
A third added: "That bull [shark] knows what's up."
Others were able to put their fears to one side to appreciate the fascinating footage, saying it was 'amazing' and 'awesome'.
