Two huge saltwater crocodiles bared their teeth during a terrifying battle for territory.

Images taken by tourists along the Daintree River in Queensland showed the male crocodiles named Scarface and Lumpy swimming side by side before they bite each other.

Tour operator Bruce Belcher can be heard in the video explaining why bubbles started to appear around one of the reptiles.

& # 39; Do you see the bubbles? That means "look out friend, I am about to throw a good one". & # 39;

The action started a few moments later.

Bruce said it was the best fight he had seen in 32 years.

"These fights are rare … It's the time of year when the males get frisky and start fighting," he said The Cairns Post.

& # 39; September is the start of the mating season, so the big males just flex their muscles to impress the females. & # 39;

The tour operator explained that crocodiles are common and argue about territory.

He said that Bubbel, the younger croc, who was 4 meters long, came upstream and entered the grounds of his older and larger opponent, Scarface, which extended to 4.5 meters.

The larger creature had dominated the river for 10 kilometers and, according to Bruce, the fight was about keeping the younger man in place.
