Saltwater crocodile vs Great white shark
Debate Rounds (3)
First round is for my opponent to accept the debate. In the second round I answer to my opponent's argument from the previous, incomplete debate.
1. Yes, this IS the fight. So shark can't turn back like like it would want to, and it should fight unlike in real life. I'm repeating that saltwater crocodiles are a great fighters, and are much more aggressive than sharks. The fight is supposed to be realistic battle between two animals and not the robots. Shark can't swim away on a separate territory, but it would try to avoid fight.
2. You just cited Google search. If you ever do this, always check sources. The shark average size has no source at all (although it is right). The crocodile size cites the zoo website, which also has no sources.
The maximum size of the saltwater crocodile is 6.3 meters, with partial tail loss . I assume that this crocodile would have a mass of about 1200 kg, or 2650 lbs. This is based on the estimation of Lolong, which is about 6.17 meters in length and 1075 kg . And he was measured at the day of capture (nearly 100 people were required to catch him), after a long fight trying to escape.
Experts agree that the largest great white captured is about 20 feet and 4200 pounds .
3. Size isn't everything! First, since the crocodile is an experienced fighter, it would know how to kill the opponent, or at least try fighting methods. The shark is NOT adapted for a big prey. It simply wouldn't know what to do. It's built for speed, not fights.
Then, the crocodile's jaws are really strong. Their bite force is more than 4500 lbs, and it is much more than that of a shark. The reptile's teeth are big and hold good to the jaws. The shark's teeth are smaller and not hold to the jaws very good. The are sharp, which is good for killing a soft prey. Crocodile has solid shell surrounding it, which is a problem for the fish.
Both animals are strong, but it is pretty obvious that with all these factors crocodile wins.
Lasmelan forfeited this round.
