A face-off between a bull shark and a massive crocodile has been captured by drone in WA’s north.
The vision, captured in Kununurra by adventurers Bryce Connole and Chelsea Wood, shows the two predators sharing some watery real estate at Ivanhoe Crossing in the Ord River.

Connole and Wood were fishing and paddling on the river when their drone recorded the meeting.
The monster croc was more than twice the size of the shark, which didn’t hang around long after encountering the massive beast.
However, the croc continued to cruise around the reed beds in the area for several days after the vision was captured, locals said.
The South Australian couple had been caravanning around WA’s north and had been keen to see some local wildlife – but they got more than they bargained for with this pair.
“We were pretty shocked, especially because it was two predators swimming around right near where we were fishing and paddling,” Wood told The West Australian.
“It couldn’t have been 500 metres from the crossing, and looking at our footage the croc was there for more than one day.
“We were kind of a bit oblivious to what was in the waters up there and thought it was fine to do the same as the locals knee-deep in the water.”
The couple is now heading off to the Northern Territory – where no doubt even more crocs will await.
They said they would be much more conscious of what they might find in the waters around them from now on.
