There's no need to be scared of sharks when you're in Australia's Northern Territory — the crocs usually get to them first.

Paul van Bruggen snapped amazing pictures of an 8 foot crocodile dining out on a shark last week on the banks of the Daly River, The Northern Territory News reported.

"We went past one section of the river and we heard some splashing,'' he said. "We looked across and saw a shark's tail coming up out of the water and then a crocodile's head came up and grabbed it.''

Van Bruggen said the crocodile knew exactly what it was doing, dragging the shark on to unfamiliar dry land before finishing off its prey.
