    Is there a link to some backstory on that one? Guessing she was dead prior to the croc getting her because the body appears to be intact.

    reddit comment says it was a homeless woman washing her clothes in the river and the gator snatched her.

    edit:

    https://mexicodailypost.com/2021/06/22/huge-crocodile-attacks-and-kills-a-woman-in-tampico/?amp

    The tragic event occurred on Monday, June 21, in the Laguna del Carpintero.

    Tampico, Tamaulipas.- A huge crocodile attacked and killed a woman when she was on the shore of the Laguna del Carpintero, allegedly washing clothes, right next to Benito Juárez’s hemicycle.


    This event, which occurred at approximately 7:00 p.m., mobilized the staff of the public security and rescue bodies who immediately came to the place, since the crocodile was swimming under the bridge, where it connects the canal and the lagoon, with the victim in the jaws as could be seen with the naked eye.

    Agents of the Fire Department and Civil Protection arrived and with the help of rods and ropes they tried to capture the huge crocodile without success, so they proceeded to use hooks tied with ropes that they threw in the water to try to capture the saurian, according to witnesses is approximately 3 meters in length.

    After intense work that lasted more than an hour, the firefighters finally managed to immobilize the animal with the use of a hook, The croc had already moved towards the lagoon with the woman’s body.

    They immediately proceeded to rescue the woman’s body, which they wrapped with a white sheet and extracted from the water, with wounds in various parts caused by the crocodile teeth.

    At the scene of the events, agents from the Tampico Transit Secretariat, agents of the State Police, as well as personnel from the Investigative Police of the Tamaulipas Attorney General’s Office, came to order the removal and transfer of the body.

    According to those who witnessed the attack, the victim was a homeless woman, but her identity will be determined by the corresponding authorities according to the investigations they carry out.

    Yeah I just thought maybe there’d be some more noticeable damage to the body. But obv the quality of the video/gif doesn’t help.

    It’s clips like these that make it easy to see why people used to think sea monsters existed.

    Tail is used for balance, and note the black markings on the eyes, same principle as eye black on football players, lessens the glare from the sun so they can focus on their target.
