“The swamp has teeth”

Films: Black Water (2007)

Alias: None

Type: Natural

Location: Swamp

Height/Weight: That of an average saltwater crocodile.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: That rogue croc wasn't the only instance where someone recounted the awfulness of an Australian tourist ride gone wrong. Here we have one that may not quite be as large or powerful as the last one. But keep in mind, a saltwater croc is still a saltwater croc...

History: A bunch of Australian tourists have decided to go into croc-infested waters to see just how vicious they are. Some disappointment later, they decide to venture further into no-man's land. But the deeper they go into the swamps, the less accommodating the crocs get. In fact, one particularly belligerent croc hates their boat like the plague, and sets out to kill them all one by one.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: After tormenting the tourists for over a day, the croc is brought down when the final survivor manages to get a busted gun to work just in time to shoot the thing dead.

Powers/Abilities: None.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 4-It’s as realistic as saltwater crocodiles can get. No tricks, no caveats, no amplifications. Well, except for a monstrous amount of tenacity. But as far as this croc was concerned, that boat was its own personal BBQ bar. Oh, and the kicker? That croc was very much real most of the time!

Trivia: -This film was mostly based off a Northern Australian croc attack in December of 2003

-Crocodiles can stay submerged for more than an hour if need be, hence why you don't see it often in the film.

Nature never really had a habit of playing fair.

That outta last him...until he gets an excuse to attack again.
Hard to do when you're submerged.

At least we got the tragic death over with.

You really don't want to know where that maw's been.

"HEY! No partners during the staring contest!"
I didn't know crocs operated on weak insults!
