Caption: Hi i'm mark this is it the moment we've . all been waiting for you guys ready to . see me feed the saltwater crocodile . let's see it okay we sure got you fully . extended right now. australia's expansive landscapes are. breathtakingly beautiful and with beauty . sometimes comes danger in fact this . continent is home to the world's most. dangerous animals when it comes to . venomous bites the land down under . stakes claim to the planets most . venomous spider and snake species if you . are human and receive just a single bite . from a creature such as the sydney . funnel-web. or the eastern brown it means almost . certain doom without a heavy dose of . anti-venom aside from the toxic bites . there are also the bone crushing and . limb ripping powers of the continents. most dangerous non venomous reptile the . saltwater crocodile capable of reaching . over 20 feet in length these massive . reptiles can tip the scales at nearly. 2,500 pounds making it the largest right . period predator in the world . today we are headed back to the . billabong wildlife sanctuary located . just outside of townsville this . establishment is considered to be one of . australia's top and good tourism . attractions and one of its biggest draws. is their enormous saltwater crocodile. named bully no i will not be getting . bitten by this prehistoric looking . behemoth however i will get the chance . to work alongside jeremy and chris to . billabong's top animal experts today . they will be giving me a crash course in . crocodile feeding which is much more. challenging than you might imagine the . ultimate goal is for me to be bullied . and however before i take on that . dangerous feed i'm going to practise by . feeding the smaller and supposedly more . docile freshwater crocodiles much more . narrow snout than the american alligator. or of course the saltwater crocodile and . that's primarily because these guys feed . on fish right exactly row us a long . skinny narrow snout shot regular shaped. teeth mccutching nice fast-moving prey . and whereas the saltwater crocodile is . looking to lunge up off an embankment . grab something drag it down into the . water around it and then crush it as it . begins to eat it exactly almost two and . a half tonnes of poison fourth all they . have to do is hold on now where does the . bite force of the freshy compared to the . salty there's no any comparison to the . australian crocodile okay again these . guys can potentially feed on small . turtles so they do still have quite a . bit of pressure there . but again the species is oftentimes . swallowing its prey hole so it doesn't . need that significant amount of closing . pressure now what's the tactic for . feeding these freshers you just throw . stuff down in there to learn we get them . to be a little more active now we'll get . them up jumping so we're gonna suspend a. bit of chicken off the end of the bamboo . pole snap of those jaws is crazy loud . we'll get them to jump for their food . effectively working for their food and . then. the order of the actual chicken today . okay cool well what i want to test out . with the saltwater crocodile is being . able to film off the end of the bamboo . pole with a gopro camera so let's test . that out here and see if it actually . works i think we have less of a chance . of losing this camera to the freshies . then we do the saltwater croc all right . here we go let's speed the crocodiles . all right what i'm gonna do chris this . should follow your piece of chicken in . i'll make sure to keep the gopro back . away from those jaws and let's see if we . can get some good jumps intimidating i . mean this isn't the largest crocodile . i've ever seen but that sound definitely . says you better back up i'm getting the . chicken first look at that one going . after the challenge whoo . i almost got the carriage you see that . ready all right here we go this is my . shot at it can i keep the chicken away . from the crocodile . oh he got it . maybe if he started to let go i could . get it back out of his jaws wow they're . a lot quicker than i thought i thought . i'd have enough time to react as the . crocodile started to jump okay now i can . kind of see how quick they are let me . take one more shot at that . the little ones coming in yeah hika . dinosaurs daddy it does . lagos guys gonna deserve the reward yes . he's jumping really nicely some loud jaw . pops - whoo watch camera . don't lose that camera it's got good . footage on it ding the edge yeah a lot . quicker than you think how many other . fast little freshies wow okay well i . think i understand the strength and the . speed of the freshwater crocodile you . guys are ready i think i'm ready to go . feed the salty. alright here we go alright so today what . we're gonna do is we're gonna get bully . jumping off the platform for you guys . feed it yeah no pressure no not at all . so what we're gonna do is jeremy is . going to go in the enclosure for you . guys to film a different perspective. okay obviously just listen to him yeah . yeah okay so mario and ben will be . inside the enclosure then it's okay and . then what we're gonna do is all . initially engage bully from the platform . 1 1 1 here he comes . 1 1 so what do we have in the buckets . here oh yeah we've got some lottie had . some roosters today so they're full of . feathers which is great for crocodiles . because the bigger food item looks the . more intense they're gonna write getting . pygmy old big help right big animal okay . who's gonna dive in after the camera if. it does fall in . you ready i mean as ready as i'm gonna . be i didn't think i would be nervous to . step out on that platform until it got . to this moment where it's like okay now . you're going on the platform to feed the . 1500 pound saltwater crocodile now the . rest of the team is getting set up we . have the dead roosters in the buckets . we're going to position them on the . bamboo poles cameras are about to be set . up and then not much left to do . other than feed the beast this is a . nervous yeah i know i'm really excited . about the same time really nervous and . the nervousness didn't set in until you . saw the crocodile come down through that . little narrow passageway and then . disappear into the murky water just. beneath the platform so stepping out . onto that platform realizing that this . 1,500 pound giant is literally beneath . the surface and it's going to erupt from . the murky water to chop at those . roosters is gonna be pretty intimidating . oh you guys ready over there we're ready . ready as i'll ever be . all right let's bring out bali let's see . what sort of a moody zing wow you're the . power in those jaws okay so we're trying . to get fully up into the shallows here . this has got half a rooster on the end. of his bamboo pole and fully is just . slowly well there we go. got the wing the clapping of those jaws . just the power and the pressure is . unbelievable well we see that water come . out of those fully got the rooster and . he won't come back up so we can get it . out of his mouth and that's one of the . things about saltwater crocodiles once . they catch their prey it will sink down . to the bottom and just sit there with it . in their jaws until it drowns then they . have the opportunity to eat it and right . now bully is thinking okay i've got the . rooster i'm gonna drown it i'm gonna . make you guys wait and so i'm ready to . come up you need it this might be that . moment . come on bully get the back here we go. here we go nice hey we got the rooster . back one more job in the hand over to . you okay boy . that was a big one right there to see . that all right mark this is it the . moment we've all been waiting for . i'm about to switch positions with chris . he's going to take the camera and i'm . gonna take the rooster you guys ready to . see me feed the saltwater crocodile . let's see it all right here we go . all right chris this camera is rolling . [music]. i've learned anything here you literally . one-shop rip the rooster right from the . fall a good job bully i think he knew . that i was a rookie literally a single . swipe of his head . in all fairness guys think the rope got . pretty saturated there was the rope guys . it was the rope i think we've got . another rooster that no yeah let's . reload alright guys this is my second . attempt at it now what chris said is to . keep the rooster right off the front of. bully's snout the big mistake that i . made is that i put the rooster right . next to his jaws and just that quick he . was able to chomp onto it and rip it . from the bamboo poles so here we go . rooster number two is about to go down . into the danger zone trying to attempt . to pull you up right now just a little . bit of taffeta rooster on the water . should bring his head up you got a fresh . one for you here bully this is a big one . this is the big meal right here there it . is i think its head still right there . you serious okay not gonna pull though . [music]. head up yeah - jules i'm gonna put a . little bit of pressure outside okay i . went from the greenies head up to the . subs just drawing a bit of slack ii okay . oh boy it's got the rooster is so . powerful feel just how happy and . powerful the jaws are through that . little piece of twine and the rooster . being in his mouth and now we're gonna . stop pulling just right out to pick me . up okay then as him douglas that's it . keep going oh he's trying to take it . give him some slack trying to provide . just a little bit of tension and i . almost had it totally out of his mouth . and then you got it back in there i just . got to wait it out now he has the entire . rooster locked in his jaws and the only . shot of getting it back is when he comes . up to the surface and tries to . manipulate it within his jaws and when . he does that i can slowly work it out . and then we'll have another shot of . getting him to jump there he is . [music]. oh it always pulling that way no no no . gonna pressure back on this yeah you . seriously i'm just hoping that that roof . doesn't break got you fully extended . right now yeah he's trying to take it . back into his corner i got a good hold . of him though as long as that twine . doesn't break we're gonna be in good . shape no it's just like when you catch . an enormous fish on a fishing line you . don't want to apply too much pressure . you just want to slowly work it in this . direction okay he's coming back here . come on bully you can do it believe it . or not i'm actually you got the rooster . he's gonna gonna get the rooster he's . gonna get the whole bowl man that was . crazy they basically said at that point . rooster is mine well bully has gotten . both of the roosters we did get a couple . of cool jumps out of him i definitely . say that chris has the expertise when it . comes to tempting the enormous saltwater. crocodile up from beneath the murky . surface but for me this was an . incredible experience here at the . billabong sanctuary getting to feed the . apex predator of australia the saltwater . crocodile i'm coyote peterson be brave . stay wild we'll see on the next . adventure . the soul water crocodile is one of the . most intimidating apex predators i have . ever worked with . and it's almost impossible to describe . how dangerous these reptiles are yet . attacks on humans are rare in fact over . the past 40 years there have only been . around 100 fatal attacks and continued . efforts by wildlife officials to post . crocodile warning signs near at-risk . water sources have made a significant . impact in keeping attack numbers loved . as for bully if you ever happen to be . near townsville and wants to see this . iconic reptile in action christened . jeremy feed him as part of a live . educational show every single day so . make sure to visit the billabong . sanctuary and trust me when i say when . using a massive crocodile leap from the . water is one of the most incredible . displays of animal power you will ever . see if you thought feeding bully was. dangerous make sure to go back and watch . the episode where i fed wanda the wombat. and almost got chomped. yikes look out coyote and don't forget . subscribe so you can join me in the crew . on this season of breaking trail .
