The crocodile
Crocodiles are dreaded prehistoric creatures capable of wreaking a terrible punishment on any human flesh. North American, Estuarine and Nile crocodiles are the most dangerous and probably kill more people yearly than figures show due to the isolated areas where attacks are likely to take place and distance from help.

One meal will keep a crocodile sated for a good while, so they like to wait in the water for the perfect time to strike. With a gross body weight of between 225kg to 1000kg, getting caught up in the massive jays of the African crocodile will be  a crocodile attack which has a story to tell.


Responsible for: An estimated 600-800 fatalities a year.
The Largest African Nile crocodile Gustavo: alone was responsible to many of the attacks in the early 80s
Hangs out in: Most of the biggest crocodiles are found in Africa in many rivers of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and south Africa while Asia mainly India, Pakistan and China has its own Indian crocodile or mash crocodile or the Mugger crocodile while Australia and many parts of North and South America have their own Crocodile and Alligator species.
Method of dispatch: With terrifying speed, crocodiles can launch themselves out of the water like a missile and latch hold of their prey. They then go into a death roll, spinning the victim around and around to disorientate, thereby lessening its chance of escape.
Useful avoidance techniques: Straight from the society of stating the obvious: do not swim in areas where there are crocodiles. It may be hot, and you may want a swim, but the croc will see you coming and the rest doesn’t bear thinking about. If you’re unfortunate enough to be grabbed, shout, scream, claw the creature on the eyes.
