And then, was it really ever that they began their beginning ?
Two fishermen in the Australian Northern Territory were able to film their fearsome paintbrush with a saltwater crocodile after they jumped out of the lake and stole a fish directly from their line.
The men named Dac and Daniel had been fishing in a Billabong in the top-end region when Daniel hooked up an "absolute ass" to a Barramundi, Dac told the Australian ABC Radio.

"Everything escalated from there fairly quickly," he said in the perhaps lost time of the century.
Fisher, Daniel can be seen stumbling in Barramundi right in front of a seemingly larger creature just below the surface.
Dac, sensing danger, advises Daniel to "run back" several times, though both men seem to roll up the Barramundi for themselves.
As soon as Daniel gets the fish On land the crocodile storms out of the water and straight to the fishermen.
"Run, Daniel! Run! Run! "Cries Dac, continuing to film while the crocodile grabs the fish from the string."
"Oh no, he has it! "Shout Dac." Stay tuned! Keep the pressure! No! No! It's so big! It's so big! He swallows it! "
" The whole thing? ", Roars Daniel back.
"The whole thing is in its pile!"
The video ends with the man complaining of the loss of a barramundi they described as "a fish's beast".

"It all went down, the bait, the line, everything." Dac told ABC Radio. "We were shocked, we were sad. I was disappointed with Daniel – it was a good fish. "
But although Dac and Dan had lost the Barramundi, they took something home with them, which they consider more valuable.
"Probably the experience of a life," said Dac.
