Bull shark attacked, killed and eaten by a Huge Saltwater Crocodile. Among the Deadliest Animals in the World, the crocodile enjoys shark for dinner. But which animal is more deadly, a shark or a crocodile?
Crocodile or Shark?
We are going to look at the facts of each animal and then you guys can decide which one is more dangerous overall. The topic came up when these photos appeared online from Australia as a tourist witnessed a saltwater crocodile getting the best of a bullshark in the East Alligator River in Kakadu National Park.
Both of these fearless predators are unique because they can live in both Salt and Freshwater. The saltwater crocodile obviously won this battle, but does that mean that saltwater crocodiles are more deadly than the bull-shark? Let’s compare
Nile Crocodile & the Saltwater Crocodile are the biggest and most dangerous of their respected species. With the Saltie being the Biggest of All Reptiles with a maximum size believed to be 23 feet and 4,000 pounds. The record for the biggest crocodile in the world was Lolong, (RIP) at 21 feet, 2300 pounds.
Of the 500 shark species, only about 10 are really any threat to humans. The great white being the biggest and most powerful with tales in history claiming a great white being 37 feet long and over 10,000 pounds, however 24 feet and 5,000+ pounds may be close to the truth.
Attacks on Humans? Every year, there about 100 shark attacks on people with less than 15 deaths worldwide. Crocodiles however, killed an average of 2,500 people every year, making them 167 times more dangerous than sharks. So that makes the crocodile much more dangerous to humans… but the question is… if you take the biggest baddest Great White Shark vs the Biggest Baddest Saltwater Crocodile… Who would win in a fight?
