The Revenge Of Brutus

Post by veya_victaous on Wed Aug 06, 2014 1:19 am

Jaws Versus Jaws
A large bull shark thought it was safe to go back in the water. But he didn’t count on Brutus, Adelaide River’s most famous and fearsome resident, who showed the shark who was the true king of the waterway.
The 5.5-metre croc has become an international sensation, one of the Top End’s biggest tourist drawcards and a frequent star of the NT News.
Brutus, who is thought to be more than 80 years old, is also known for his missing front leg. The story goes that the limb was lost in a shark attack.



Yesterday, in front of about 25 passengers on the regular 11am cruise, Brutus took his revenge. The moment was captured by Sydneysider Andrew Paice, who is travelling around Australia with his wife Nikki Beaumont and their daughter Madison, 6.

Donno about Brutus.  How come the missing leg is suddenly on the other side? Lol

It's kinda like the mole on King John's face in the film, Robin Hood...Men in Tights. Keeps going from one side to the other.

The first picture (below) shows his right leg in perfect condition, right at the water and mud line.  He's using it to push forward.  (Right below the shark's mouth, 2-dimensionally.)

@quill
i zoomed in hard to say could be the mud. he still has the shoulder part. the Paper say it is Brutus, the Jumping Croc tour guys are on the river looking at Crocs everyday  ::dunno:: 

I was looking at NT croc Clips yesterday as Brutus is actually only the 3rd biggest, the other 2 are both younger.

NOTE Saltwater Crocs was hunted to endangered levels until they were protected in the 70's
So Big ones like Brutus will become less uncommon over the years, Brutus is About 80 years old they reckon.

On second glance, it's tough to tell just looking straight up the animal's back like that. But if a shark did take the leg, I can see why he is pissed.
