Crocodile sneaks up on distracted tour guide in terrifying video

File under ‘lucky escape’.

THIS GROUP OF tourists were taking a river cruise on the Adelaide River in Australia’s Northern Territory.

As the guide explained the hunting habits of the saltwater crocodile, the group looked at the animal he was pointing to.

They didn’t notice the other one sneaking up behind him, before lunging violently up the side of the boat.

Let’s file this under ‘near miss’, will we? This slowed-down GIF shows how close the croc came:

The tourist who took the video wrote “Best boat ride ever!!” Which is one way of looking at it.
