Terrifying video shows a crocodile jumping at least five feet out of the water

Terrifying Crocodile Jump

There’s something fundamentally unnerving about an animal performing a completely surprising physical feat. After all, if you’re already on high alert when in the presence of a dangerous animal, the last thing you need is to be taken aback by some new-found talent you had no idea it possessed.

We’re not talking about flying squirrels here, we’re talking about a full-grown crocodile that can quite literally leap out of the water. Sure, we expect sharks to majestically jump out of the water in an effort to grab a meal, but that’s not a skill most people would even assume a seemingly lazy crocodile might possess.

Suffice it to say, you might want to think twice before going on a nice and gentle Sunday afternoon boat ride along the bayou. In the video below, originally posted to Instagram by National Geographic photographer Trevor Frost, we see an incredibly powerful and determined crocodile using its tail to propel itself higher into the air than you’d ever expect to see one to reach.


“Crocodiles have incredibly strong tails,” Frost notes. “Their tails propel them in the water like torpedoes from a submarine.”

Apparently so.
