Marcus defiantly continues to film the animal on his phone as it changes course and takes a bite out of the tire of his trailer.

“Brus, that’s perverse,” says the friend off camera.

Mr. Marcus gets in the back of his truck and follows the alligator as he walks behind his vehicle.

He stands precariously on the edge to take a photo on his phone with nothing but the length of the rusty trailer keeping him safe.

Mr. Marcus and his friend finally managed to get a photo next to the alligator as it lay motionless on the other side of the road.

In June, a pub owner went viral after smashing a frying pan over the head of a crocodile.

The wild moment was captured on camera at the Goat Island lodge in the Northern Territory with Kai Hansen refusing to back down from the 2.5m reptile.

Two blows to the nose were enough for the troublesome crocodile to turn around and run back into the water.

Across Australia there are thought to be over 100,000 full-size crocodiles in the wild with the largest population found in the Northern Territory.

Male crocodiles can reach a staggering 3.3m in length, while females can grow up to 2.3m.

An alligator’s bite is incredibly powerful with a bite force of 3700 PSI.

PSI is an abbreviation for “pounds per square inch” and the term is used as a unit of measurement to determine the bite force of animals.
