A NEW Zealand kayaker prayed for his life as he was kept hostage on a remote Australian island by a giant crocodile he believed would devour him at any moment. Ryan Blair had an amazing escape after becoming trapped on a remote island off the coast of Western Australia for more than two weeks by the massive crocodile that wouldn't let him leave.

6 meters is a big crock. But a good spear to the right spot, and this dude could have dined on lizard meat.
Tastes like chicken doncha know.
No, no lizard makes lunch outta me, especially when I’m carrying my favorite salt shaker.
In the world of eat or get eaten, I’m the guy with the knife and fork.
You should post more...
Blair’s a kiwi. The saltie prolly smelled the sheep on him.
The last line is a classic.
Sounds like the plot for a SyFy movie of the week.
I know you forgot the /s> tag at the end of your post, because there are about a gazillion freepers who really think I should have my keyboard confiscated and my fingers chopped off!
“The title is a little misleading.”
You got that right! I thought he was stuck out in Puget Sound somewhere.
Good luck with that.
There’s a whole wide world out there...
<You got that right! I thought he was stuck out in Puget Sound somewhere.
Same here. After 5 years in Seattle, I thought crocs had somehow invaded the San Juans.
Crocodile could’ve been in love and never had any intention to harm him.
Its all attitude. If I’m more hungry than that crock, then he’s got a problem.
If we are both just as hungry, then I’ll rely on the fact that I AM ON TOP THE FOOD CHAIN, and I really CAN out think a lizard.
Oh yea, I RESPECT the crocks abilities and agilities. OTH, I subscribe to the age old wisdom: “If you can eat it, you can beat it.” You just need to be hungry enough.
Stew pot is the great equalizer.
Sometimes you get the bear, sometimes the bear gets you. But since I’m smarter than the bear, the bear’s gotta work a lot harder to eat me than I have to, to eat him.
Its all in your head. Once you fixate on what’s for lunch, its really hard to run away from a good meal.
One never knows.
“HEY LADY KISS THAT FROG!!”
Lovers quarrel .... dumped him and then got jailed?
It just seemed like an odd thing to glide over in the story.
18 feet long? More likely be dined upon!
then Ill rely on the fact that I AM ON TOP THE FOOD CHAIN, and I really CAN out think a lizard.
You are only on the top of the food chain IF YOU WIN.
Yup, that’s a bigun, but the brain is still the size of pea.
If you can’t out think that, then you deserve to be dinner.
Remember, humans took down wooly mammoths. With spears and rocks.
Now THAT’S a challenge.
