Are crocodiles terrifying? Sure. Could they be even scarier? Uh—we’re not sure we want to know.
But it’s too late. National Geographic photographer Trevor Frost shared an Instagram video of a saltwater crocodile going more or less airborne on the strength of its tail and its craving for meat. Having seen this, we doubt we’ll set foot in a natural body of water as long as we live.

Friends, sorry it took me a day longer to get this video out to you; I was on a one day assignment for @sciencemagazine and had limited access to Internet. But here it is!!! 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. Stay tuned for more amazing crocodile photos and videos. @eddiebauer #liveyouradventure
A gritty bayou-centric Air Bud reboot can’t be far off.
