An Australian man who goes by the name Matt Wright went viral this week after he posted a video of him shooing away a 13-foot crocodile nicknamed Bonecruncher.
Fox News reports that the funny incident happened while he was trying to get logs out from a river. In the viral video, he could be seen being tailed by the big crocodile.
"We're just trying to get a few logs out of the water here, having a bit of a hard time, we've got a little friend that's come and visited us,” he said in the video as the crocodile follows him gently.
The croc silently was swimming to him as he made the video speaking into the camera. Just when the animal was getting too close, he shooed it, telling the crocodile to stay away.
That act was one very unbelievable moment. Wright yelled, “Go away! Get out!”. Then he commanded it to “Sit!” as if he was addressing a dog.
Before pushing the croc away, he patted it on the head. Later on, the hunter said:
“Guys, understand this is not normal behaviour for a saltwater croc.”
He went ahead to say that despite working with crocs for over 20 years and Bonecruncher for seven years, he has never seen any behave in such a way.

The video attracted lots of reactions.
Below are some of the comments:
This is a wild and perfectly healthy croc, isn’t it? Just want to clear it up for those who think he’s disabled in some way.
Lol. Only in Australia can you shoo away a 15 crocodile like it's a little puppy.
Is he trying to attack and he just can’t do damage because of his injury anymore? Or is he actually wanting to play in a way?
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that a black woman with the name Jose Scott shared a very funny picture of her dog, Esther, that went to a party with friends.
The photo she shared on Saturday, September 19, showed her dog in the company of others as they all stood together around a covered table that looked like they just indeed had a party.
