Somehow?
It survived crocodile infested water because it's a farking humpback whale.

Here is the only scenario you'll see a crocodile eating a Humpback:

That little lizard ain't no threat to a live Humpback.

This is a very Australian story.

I wonder why it didn't just fly away.

Doesn't a croc basically kill its prey by either eating small things they can get in one bite or pulling something bigger under water until it drowns? I think the croc may run into a couple of problems trying to outlast a humpback whale under water. I mean, they sometimes do that in groups. But unless the humpback is very young or sickly, it should still have the advantage on a croc group...  which I just googled and it is apparently called a bask.

That would have to be one hell of a group of crocodiles and I'm fairly certain even then their teeth would have a hard time getting through the whale's skin and the whale would still be strong enough to knock them all off.

Here is a close up of a dead blue whale's skin:

Be like me trying to take bite out of the epcot ball

I like to imagine the crocs helped get the whale home in a light hearted and family-friendly way.

Are we sure it wasn't the Australian entry in the 'being eaten by a crocodile event'?

Not a whale...

The crocs were probably thinking "Holy fark, what did we do to deserve this?"

It was a whale going up a river in Australia. Obviously it survived because it was the sub-species Megaptera novaeangliae australius. They are known for their thick armored skin, laser-shooting eyes and sub-vocalizations that can kill potential predators by making their auditory systems explode.

Bloody pussy Crocs.
What is Aussy coming to when a Whale stupid enough to swim up a river survives?

I bet they were all LGBT Crocs with learning difficulties and emotional issues!

Or perhaps it was just one Bad Mthrfarkn Whale .... who knows? ;P

Immediately the image that came to mind is the Whale from The Boys combined with the iconic movie Piranha.

There is a certain natural order in things.  The crocodiles were occupied with other activities.  Everyone knows that you jump, jive and THEN you whale.

OMG, That poor, poor thing.

Deep is such an idiot.. I mean, sometimes he means well (Hmph! Other that the sexual assault and most other moments in his life, i guess), but what a self centered idiot.
