A woman captured jaw-dropping footage of an approximately 4.5m crocodile in Queensland’s Cardwell Beach, Australia, casually eating sharks onshore.

Yvonne Palmer posted a video on Facebook of the moments leading up to the gigantic crocodile swimming along the beach during her fishing trip.

Clearly shaken, she says: “I just caught a shark which I couldn’t get back to the water because this fella was coming to eat it…

“Oh my Lord, this thing is only meters away from us…This monster is like 10 metres away from us…I have never been shaking so much in my whole life.”
