saltwater crocodile swimmingThis is an interesting sequence which shows just how fast a crocodile in the water can move. At the start of the sequence, the crocodile swims towards the camera, using only its tail to move smoothly through the water. Steering is achieved by turning the head and curving the body. After turning slightly to its right, the crocodile suddenly flexes its entire tail and body violently and explodes out of the frame. This really illustrates how effortlessly crocodiles move through the water, and how they are such an effective and lethal predator in the water.
