This large bull shark might have thought it was safe to go back in the water. But he didn’t count on Brutus, Adelaide River’s most famous and fearsome resident, who showed the shark who was the true king of the waterway.

The 5.5-metre (18ft) croc has become an international sensation, one of Australias' Top End’s biggest tourist drawcards and a frequent star of the NT News. Brutus, who is thought to be more than 80 years old, is also known for his missing front leg.

The story goes that the limb was lost in a shark attack.  Yesterday, in front of about 25 passengers on the regular 11am cruise, Brutus took his revenge.

That is by far the largest croc I've ever seen and I've seen some pretty big ones.  That boy is a monster.
