British photographer Andrew Paice got the holiday snap of lifetime when he came across a 5.5m crocodile tussling with a shark in Australia's Kakadu National Park.

The croc is well-known to locals as Brutus and was spotted by tourists on a river cruise as it came across the shark.

"The tour guide had Brutus jumping at some meat the first time we went past him," Paice told the Daily Mail Australia.

"We were on our way back to the jetty when we saw [the crocodile] had something in his mouth."
