A crocodile has shown its speed and strength after throwing a fish from a nearby boat.
Footage posted last month by an Australian TikTok user shows the boat approaching the reptile, which lies motionless on a muddy riverbank.
But when a fish is thrown, the beast springs into action and picks up the fish in a split second.

The reptile then swings around and runs through the mud before disappearing from view as onlookers react in raptures.
One puzzled viewer joked about the crocodile having “eyes in the back of his head,” while another was amazed at how it glided through the mud.
Others warned the men in the boat against throwing food at crocodiles, saying the predator would soon “follow” them.
