Video: A mammoth crocodile steals a fish off the line of shocked fisherman

Video: A mammoth crocodile steals a fish off the line of shocked fisherman

A group of fisherman in Townsville, Queensland thought they had landed a massive catch but were given a nasty shock when a mammoth crocodile stole their fish off the end of the line.

The men were reeling in a barramundi when something massive hooked on.

The fisherman were thrilled with one saying off camera: “Here’s a good fish, mate.”

Sean Evans, who filmed the catch, asked: “Did you get it yet, Dad?”

But then the croc made its grand entrance. With one swift swipe the prehistoric creature had stolen the catch from the fisherman. The video ends with the crocodile swimming away, no doubt to eat its dinner in peace.
