Fans of Brutus, the monstrous saltwater crocodile, take heart: He’s real! Ever since a photograph of the 18-foot-long, 2000-lb. crocodile surfaced earlier this week, some have alleged that it may have been a hoax.
So, an intrepid crew from ‘Today’ embarked on a tour of the Adelaide River in Australia in search of the massive reptile. Lo and behold, the crew managed to film footage of the approximately 80-year-old animal as it happily munched on buffalo provided by their tour guide. And, disturbingly, Brutus appeared to be every bit as large as the stories said.
