A photograph showing an enormous crocodile caught in a popular fishing spot has been terrifying viewers from Australia to the UK and Africa.
The photo was posted on Facebook with warnings that people should avoid waters where the monster reptile was caught – but few clues to the actual location.
A woman in the UK posted the photo, which left thousands of people desperately trying to work out where the massive creature has come from.
In the photo three men can be seen standing on each other’s shoulders to show just how big the crocodile is as it hangs from a tree.
‘Now when they say don’t fish waste (sic) deep please LISTEN people this is a proper FLAT DOG,’ Lynsey Clayton Saudan, who uploaded the photo, commented on her Facebook page.
The image has now been shared more than 12,000 with many croc crusaders believing that the photograph could have been taken in the Northern Territory or Far North Queensland.
However, the original post gives away a few clues that the animal’s origin may well be much further away.
Ms Saunders is described as a ‘fulltime mum’ on her Facebook profile who is originally from Bulawayo in Zimbabwe, but now lives in Southampton in the UK.
