Scuba diver is attacked by crocodile in Cuba

Australia scuba diver is attacked by a crocodile in Cuba!

Melissa Marquez, who is a marine biologist, was night diving at the time in Cuba when she felt the jaws of a three metre croc clamp down on her leg.

The crocodile let her go in the end and she was ok, but it must have been a scary experience.

Melissa studies sharks and knew that the bite was not a shark. She found herself being dragged backwards through the water.

I must admit I thought the dives with crocodiles in Cuba seemed ok until I read this. I was even surprised the croc ‘attacked’ at night too. I didn’t realise crocodiles were nocturnal predators like sharks are.
