The Hulk? Bright green crocodile emerges from river

You would think a crocodile coming out of the water would be enough to scare anyone away, but this photographer wasn't fazed when he saw one that could have been mistaken for a reptilian Hulk - or 'Culk' for short.

South African Armand Grobler took the photos near Lower Sabie rest camp in the Kruger National Park, and was stunned to find the crocodile emerging in a bright green coat of what he suspected was Blue Green Algae.

Armand said: "He definitely looks similar to a mythical creature or monster.

"At first I thought the Hulk could be a good description, but then I thought it could be the Loch Ness Monster."

The 22-year-old does photography just as a hobby, but said he would love to do it full time. It was by chance while he was at work as a freelance field guide at Mopane Bush Lodge and Kruger National Park that he took these photos.

The crocodile can be seen slinking along the banks of the lake after gliding through the water – where it presumably managed to get its look of a mythical monster.
