Crocodiles are very fast over short distances, even out of water. The land speed record for a crocodile is 17 km/h (11 mph) measured in a galloping Australian freshwater crocodile. Can you really escape alligator attacks? Most of the attacks are the result of people putting themselves in bad situations.
Never under-estimate the attacking speed of crocodile from a standing start, and never under-estimate how fast they can move when running away from you!
