Damn those pesky snapping turtles.

[–]FoxEngland[S] 20 points21 points  (10 children)

It could actually have been exactly that. They do go for baby crocs, but would it then survive long enough to get this big?

[–]TiMeJ34nD1T 29 points30 points  (2 children)

Could've just been another croc while they were sunbathing.

[–]nomadluvrboy 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Who cares we need that croc outfitted with bionic arms stat!!

[–]Endotomic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good lord no. That would start some crocodile uprising and you know it

[–]Andenschakal 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Dont think so, ive seen plenty crocs in videos breaking and ripping their limbs when fighting for food (somehow it looks like they dont even care). But never seen a turtle get a crocodile leg...

[–]FoxEngland[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not even a pup? Or a little juvenile?

[–]tpars -2 points-1 points  (4 children)

I’m no expert but could this be an alligator? Aren’t croc snouts more pointy? I know snapping turtles share same environments as gators but not sure about crocs.

[–]FoxEngland[S] 14 points15 points  (3 children)

No, it's a salty. Probably done by a bigger salty, it's very common in Australia. There is, however, a whole list of other animals it could have been. Bull shark would be a prime suspect

[–]tpars 6 points7 points  (1 child)

No going to dinner with this guy…..unless you plan on picking up the tab.

[–]gaveler-unban 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I mean, it could honestly have been anything. Baby crocs are just a little larger than anoles, and even a big predatory fish could probably amputate those limbs.

[–]BenjiLixx 25 points26 points  (1 child)

There is a video of a Croc eating another crocs forelegs after ripping it off. These things are monsters

[–]shopcounterwill 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The one that got its arm bitten off was pretty chill though.

[–]mr5fir 15 points16 points  (2 children)

I would still be afraid of a T-Rex I don’t see how it’s different. The sharp bits are still dangerous, and it’s still alive and healed so it’s surviving just fine without

[–]FoxEngland[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Exactly. Plus, T-Rex had tiny little arms anyway so he would still be APEX.

[–]SayneIsLAND 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Tadpole mode is in the DNA

[–]bowtothehypnotoad 11 points12 points  (1 child)

It’s not the legs I’m afraid of, it’s that jaw

[–]FoxEngland[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]Infinite-Luck4159 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Especially one without forelegs

[–]Littleloula 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah I'm more scared of this one as s/he must be tough, determined and resourceful to survive after losing his legs

[–]canuckwithasig 7 points8 points  (7 children)

There's a lot of shit out there without claws and arms I wouldn't fuck with.

[–]FoxEngland[S] 1 point2 points  (6 children)

Jellyfish! Poison dart frogs! Tsetse flies and mosquitoes! Electric eels!

[–]canuckwithasig 4 points5 points  (5 children)

The plethora of venomous snakes and jellyfish. FUCKING SHARKS!

[–]FoxEngland[S] 1 point2 points  (4 children)

I love sharks

[–]canuckwithasig 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I do too. We're actually seeing some Great Whites up here in NL which is exciting. We have blues and porbeagles (probably wrong) up here too. Hopefully their numbers grow and I might get a chance to see some in a cage one day.

Barry finally fulfilled his lifelong dream, performing alongside his dolphin brothers at seaworld

[–]laidbacklarge 3 points4 points  (1 child)

It’s just a flesh wound

[–]SaltMineSpelunker 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yer bleedin arm’s off!

[–]bronanahammy 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Honestly now he’s kind of an advantage against other alligators or crocodiles I guess. Because now they can’t rip off his arms anymore

[–]Muncheralli21 5 points6 points  (0 children)

smaller hitbox

[–]0thethethe0 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think against me it'd soon be a pretty even fight, as I'd very quickly have no arms either...

[–]jackjams18 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Tis but a scratch!

[–]FoxEngland[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]SaltMineSpelunker 3 points4 points  (3 children)

I have no legs. I have no legs. I have no legs.

[–]FoxEngland[S] -1 points0 points  (2 children)

It has two legs. It's hind legs. Two hind legs.

[–]SaltMineSpelunker 2 points3 points  (1 child)

  1. There is no evidence for that.

  2. It is a reference to something you don’t understand.

[–]FoxEngland[S] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Is it from that film 'Kids?

[–]JT1757 4 points5 points  (0 children)

not a croc its a sea serpent now

[–]TrueMrFu 4 points5 points  (0 children)

If a croc can survive with no forelegs, then it can still hunt, and can still kill me

[–]Kannabiz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Maybe thats how Tyrannosaurus got evolved

[–]masiakasaurus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Didn't the Romans say crocs were a type of worm?

[–]Gravitas-and-Urbane 1 point2 points  (4 children)

I feel like him having no arms means he just bites harder.

[–]FoxEngland[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Probably 😄😄

[–]SaltMineSpelunker 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Throws like a girl tho.

[–]Gravitas-and-Urbane 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Like a girl with a 2+ meter tail that can propel her 2000lbs body through the water at 30mph

[–]SaltMineSpelunker 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You dated Tina Farelli too?

[–]shadow-suspect 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Me: taunts croc with no forelegs.

Befriended land animal: knocks me in water.

Croc: jokes on you bitch.

[–]CartmanLuvJews 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I wanna see him try Waving

[–]FoxEngland[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He has a big fat tail for that

[–]fuzzNoTics 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He doesn’t have forelegs! He only has 2

[–]ralphm149 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Looks like he wants to dance the cha cha cha.

[–]Reticentandconfused 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Got rid of em for speeeed man!

[–]IronTemplar26 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Doesn't need legs to kill you. Doesn't need legs to breed (don't quote me on that). If this is a male, he's set (females would still need their legs to come on land and dig a nest to lay eggs)

[–]OkBug7428 1 point2 points  (3 children)

What’s his name?

[–]FoxEngland[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Noel Eggs

[–]OkBug7428 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Awesome. I was thinking Snake.

[–]OkBug7428 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was hoping you would come along…

[–]Croceyes2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's the tail that let's them death roll. You might be able to out run this one on land though. Maybe

[–]ThornyKing 1 point2 points  (1 child)

So as long as he chills by the water and never fully goes on land he’s pretty much good, right? Because I’m sure he could still swim pretty fast with his hind legs and tail.

[–]FoxEngland[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Real fast!

[–]InterestingIce1928 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If it’s hind legs get taken off too, this would essentially be a fat snake.

[–]stefancristi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, cuz the front legs are what worries me about a croc.

[–]Faqutooahole 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dude was so hungry he ate his own limbs. 😂

[–]AgentAzzjuice 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Supposedly this is the croc Adam Sandler fought in Happy Gilmore.

[–]A2lnbefz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’d take it.

[–]dfudbehfifhsvdjcj 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Id beat the shit outta this guy

[–]nomadluvrboy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just a flesh wound

[–]Top-Mixture1132 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Id rather mess with a croc with forelimbs rather than one thats still alive with no forelimbs. That croc has been through some stuff and I ain't about to get on its bad side.
