Giant Crocodile Decides To Ride Some Waves, Closes Down Australian Beach... Amazing Pictures

February 28, 2014

It's hard to imagine a creature more menacing than a great white shark swimming in the surf, but a giant crocodile comes close. A 12-foot salt water crocodile was spotted riding the waves at Cable Beach in Broome, Western Australia.

It's unclear what lured the reptile into the surf zone, but the unusual sighting generated quite the spectacle!

Sharon Scoble captured the images after receiving a call from her son who spotted the croc while driving to the beach.

Scoble told Perth Now: "It was absolutely awesome. But it wouldn't have been so awesome if I was swimming and noticed it."

The crocodile will not be harmed, but local authorities plan to relocate it leaving Cable Beach swimmers with only one genuine worry: sharks.
