“In mid-April 2016, I was able to witness the tense confrontation between two Estuarine Crocodiles (Crocodylus porosus) in the wild waters of Sungei Buloh. One of them appeared to be particularly territorial and would not tolerate the presence of the other, pursuing it with both ferocity and velocity (above and below).
“Although this altercation did not last for long, it was an impressive exhibition of acceleration and aggression for an ancient reptile that usually appears deceptively lethargic.
“Video clips of this confrontation (in actual speed, and in slow motion) may be previewed as follows:”
