This 16 foot crocodile has just proven who's the king of the swamp as he made mince meat of a bull shark at Kakadu National Park.

A bunch of tourists looked on in shock when they saw the croc chomping on the shark at the upper flood plains of the south Alligator River.

But tour guide Dean Cameron, 34, believed the shark would have been at least 10 foot long and 132 pounds. The croc would have taken the shark at night.

But it was not the first time a crocodile has been witnessed feasting on a shark. Maxine Rawson-Rodriquez was on a Jumping Crocodile Cruise on the Adelaide River - about 60 miles south of Darwin - when the tourist boat came across another crocodile eating a shark on 24 March.

Mr. Cameron, who has been a tour guide for two years and a park reabnger for several more, said he would come across such a spectacle once a year.
