The decapitated head of a crocodile washed ashore on a South African beach, leaving locals questioning how the magnificent creature came to its demise.

Some believe the crocodile was a victim of poachers, while others believe it met its demise at the fault of a hippo or a tiger shark.

The couple who took photographs and videos of the crocodile head, Neale and Brigitte Cary-Smith from St Lucia, South Africa, have no doubt in their minds that it was caused by a great white shark.

“You can see where the shark has actually ripped it,” one can hear Neale say on the video.

“On the side here in the flesh you can see the shark teeth.

“It’s quite normal for sharks to swim here in the sea at St Lucia and it’s also very normal for very large sharks to be very close to the shore.”

The couple, who live nearby and walk their dogs on the beach every morning at sunrise, say the cleanly severed head points to a great white.
