enormous crocodile head washed up on south african beach

That’s one big bite!

Back in 2013 a couple who are residents of St Lucia South Africa came across a massive crocodile head laying on the beach during their daily morning walk.

The husband and wife team work to show the size of the head in the video by having the wife, Brigitte, place her hand on the crocodile’s head.

The husband, Neale, then begins to speculate about how big the crocodile was and what could have bitten its body off of the head. He estimated the whole length of the croc at 3 meters or about 9.84 feet and that the killer had to have been a great white shark due to the bite marks still visible on the head and how cleanly the bite was.
