Anybody ever seen crocodiles or other such crocodilians whilst diving? The last dive I went on the divemaster said he'd seen them around but that in deep ocean water they're not interested in munching big prey like humans.

I was diving off Port Douglas. Apparently there has only been one recorded attack on a scuba diver on the GBR. The thing is, the way they kill you is they take you underwater and hold you there until you drown. This is a problem for them if you're rigged for scuba diving. So you just keep hitting them on the nose until they give up and let you go.

Steve Irwin used to chase after them in the ocean without any trouble. It was a bull ray that killed him. I've seen a bull ray before and wasn't that alarmed.
