Next round: croc vs. polar bear
Round 1: in the water
Round 2: on land
Round 3: free-style

False flag.
 
2013-09-20 06:53:41 PM
No. I saw on Discovery Channel that in a fight to the death, the shark would pull the croc underwater and hold it until it drowned.

We're gonna need a bigger shark.

Have you ever looked into a crocodile's eyes?
 
2013-09-20 07:07:18 PM
The croc would just have to do what orcas do. Grab the shark and turn it upside down so it goes into a trance, then hold it still so no water goes over the gills, and drown it.

While I can of course look this up pretty easily, it might have been interesting for the 'journalist' to include information about how old each creature type is in the fossil record. But that might actually educate people and/or inflame the creationists.

/sigh

I somehow doubt that crocs think that far ahead.

Those crocs in Far Cry 3 could certainly take on a shark.

For next year's Air Jaws, the Discovery channel needs to release a large salt water croc off the waters of South Africa. Now that would be awesome.

That wasnt a shark.  If it had grown for another few years it might have become a Shark. But that was just a adolescent fish.  Call me when a proper croc goes up against a proper Bullshark, THAT will be a farking fight.

Can anyone explain why there is an ALLIGATOR River in Australia?????????

It's Australian humor.  Like when they say "Fosters" is Australian for beer.

Saltwater crocodiles superficially look somewhat like Alligators--much more than the Freshwater Crocodile that also lives in Australia.  In early days, when they named that river (which is full of Salties), they thought that Salties were Alligators.
 
2013-09-20 08:06:36 PM
Are you frigging kidding me? I had a nightmare the other night about falling into a pool with a shark and an alligator and, instead of coming after me, they battled each other. Creepy.
 
2013-09-20 08:39:26 PM
Unfortunately the shark already got it's claspers in the croc and soon we will all face the wrath of the SHARKODILE!!!

Considering Bull Sharks go upriver typically to spawn, it's not really a fair fight in the slightest. It was either a female, exhausted from birthing, or a juvenile still cutting its teeth in the ways of hunting.

Or maybe even already dead of non-croc causes and the croc is just enjoying some fast food.

In shallow river waters like that, I would have bet $ on the crocodile.  The bull shark was looking for smaller and easier prey.  It probably didn't even know that the croc was there.

I want to know who would win in a match of manul vs. sable
 
2013-09-20 09:49:48 PM
Assuming it actually killed the shark at all...Bull sharks are generally between 200lbs and 300lbs.  Saltwater crocodiles range anywhere from 900lbs to well over 2000lbs.  No shiat a saltwater crocodile would win against a bull shark.  Great Whites, however, grow to between 4000lbs and 5000lbs.

Not that I expect much from the Daily Fail, but pitting the largest crocodile species on the planet against what is effectively a midget shark then following with "finally we have an answer" is pathetic.

Cheers.

When I was a kid I had a big thing going for lizard-shaped reptiles [ie. not lame-assed frogs or turtles etc etc]. Yet for DECADES, somehow I had never heard of the word "crocodilian" until Bindi Irwin recently spake it on her kids' nature show. I thought she was making shiat up.

Daughter of Steve Irwin.

Crikey!

Came here for this. We saw a jaguar eat a caiman not long ago, so if shark<crocodile and caiman<jaguar, does that mean that shark<jaguar is accurate?

/I want to see a hammerhead fight a tiger
//Somebody make this happen

///crocodilian refer to creature of the or bearing resemblance to order of crocodiliia, which includes crocodiles, alligators, caiman, and gharial (which I personally thing are the coolest looking sub species).

Does a Kronosaurus count as a Sharkodile?

/Bonus, these guys lived in the early Cretaceous, same as the coelacanth (which turned out to have survived into the present day
//sweet dreams!
 
2013-09-21 06:26:54 AM
So with the panther vs crocodile from a week ago, that makes the current order of things:

1. panther
2. croc
3. shark

Poor shark.

That picture is so fake. Everyone knows cameras were only capable of black and white pictures during the Cretaceous period.
