My statement is that saltwater crocodile would kill great white shark in record size, average size or equal size.

Hey I'm busy now. But I won't post an argument since you didn't. This way, we both have the same amount of rounds.

Saltwater crocodiles and crocodiles in general are much more aggressive. They often fight each other. Sharks don't fight, and their hunting methods are safe. Since shark is faster, it would just swim away with no trouble. But in the fight crocodile is the winning side.

Here's the saltwater crocodile fight compilation:

You specifically stated in the resolution that this is a "fight", meaning that the shark cannot turn back. This isn't supposed to be entirely realistic, it's supposed to be a debate who would win in a fight, not who would turn back. That is a biased outcome.

Saltwater Crocodiles generally weigh about 800-2,200 lbs, and Great Whites generally weigh about 1,500-2,400 lbs. The Great White is more durable since it has more muscle, and with its sheer size it will win the battle.

I was preparing an argument, but for some reason paths time ran out and I wasn't even informed to submit it in time. Sad.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro never really argued the resolution, merely stating that a shark would decide not to engage. That's not a fight, and if it was, it still wouldn't prove that the crocodile won it. Con may not give much reasoning for why the shark would win, but Pro gave absolutely no reasoning for why the crocodile would. Hence, I vote Con. Also, b/c of the extra forfeit, conduct to Con.
