Photo of the Day: Monster Croc Brutus Thrills Australian Tourists

Yes, it’s real. Nothern Territory News photographer Katrina Bridgeford took this amazing front page photograph of Brutus, a 5.5m (~18 feets) saltwater croc, giving a boatload of tourists a moment they’ll never forget on the Adelaide River, just over 100km south of Darwin, Australia, last week.
