INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A video of a crocodile appearing to defy gravity has gone viral and it could either be terrifying or extremely cool.
A National Geographic photographer posted the video on Instagram. It shows a crocodile leaping out of water using its tail.
The photographer, Trevor Frost, says crocodiles have very strong tails to help them propel out of the water.
“Crocodiles have incredibly strong tails. Their tails propel them in the water like torpedoes from a submarine. In fact, as you see here, their tails are so strong that they can propel their entire body out of the water. Crocodiles are so cool.”
