This Crocodile Jumping Out of the Water Will Scare You Off Rivers Forever

By Casey Chan on at

Come on, man. Is this even allowed? How is it fair that crocodiles can just shoot up—like, completely vertical—out of the water like this?

This crocodile impossibly jumping straight out of the water is the scariest thing

I’m totally fin with them swim-lurking and then chomping down on the surface of the water or the shore but this is just not right. This guy is basically flying, he’s living on a different plane than the rest of us.

We all have to thank (or really, to curse) the tails of the crocs for giving them this ridiculous superpower. The video was taken by National Geographic photographer Trevor Frost.
