freshwater crocodile gallopingAustralian freshwater crocodile (Crocodylus johnstoni) galloping towards the water. Like the sequence "GALLOP 1" this crocodile is using the gallop to escape from danger into the water. Although crocodiles can gallop along flat surfaces and even briefly up steep inclines, they gallop most readily down a hill towards clearly visible water. Smaller crocodiles have a much faster stride frequency than large crocodiles - in effect they appear speeded up compared to larger animals. Big adult freshwater crocodiles will still gallop away from potential danger, however. There's always a bigger crocodile capable of attacking you, especially in Australia where saltwater crocodiles are potential threats.
