Jaws may have finally met its match.

Think modern crocodiles are terrifying? How about a 16-foot-long, nearly half a ton sort-of-crocodile?

Tourists on a wildlife cruise exploring Australia’s Adelaide River on Monday were stunned to see a crocodile chomping down on a large bull shark.

The 18-foot crocodile, dubbed by local media as “Brutus,” is known for his missing front leg and is believed to be more than 80 years old.

“We’d fed Brutus on the bank earlier and were coming back past and we saw something in his mouth,” Andrew Paice, from Sydney, told NT News. “The shark was still alive. Brutus took the shark back into the water and then started to shake it around a bit."

Cruise operator Morgan Bowman said sharks aren’t spotted often.

“That’s the first time I’ve ever seen one of our crocs catch a shark. It was amazing,” he said.

Rivers in the area are home to several species of shark that travel hundreds of miles inland, according to NT News. The bull shark can grow to more than 10 feet in length.
