A stubborn crocodile has created a massive roadblock in outback Australia and refuses to move for a 4WD until the driver impatiently sounds his horn.
Jordan Waterbury shared footage with TikTok showing his vehicle being stopped late at night by the monster crocodile in the Northern Territory.
The video begins by following the vehicle slowly approaching a section of a remote underwater road as Mr. Waterbury honks at the crocodile slithering through the water.
The crocodile begins to approach the stationary vehicle before suddenly making a huge splash and quickly spinning in the opposite direction.
Mr. Waterbury yells ‘off the road’ as the crocodile looks back into the darkness.
The mammoth beast refuses to leave the road for a few seconds, creating a clear blockage.

Only when the driver uses his car horn for the second time does the stubborn crocodile decide to get off the road and quickly crawl into the darkness.
Many users of the social media site joked that the reptile was a type of speed bump seen in the outback.
One user wrote: ‘Roadblock? That’s just a speed bump.’
The stubborn crocodile stopped and refused to leave the road for several seconds before the sound of the car horn suddenly caused the reptile to quickly move to the side of the road
“Just a speed bump in the outback,” wrote another.
However, another person believed that the vehicle’s bright headlights had confused the crocodile.
“The lights disoriented him. He has no idea where to go,” they said.
The Northern Territory has the world’s largest population of wild crocodiles, with over 100,000 in the wild.
Crocodiles can be found more than 200 km offshore in freshwater lakes.
Individuals living in areas with crocodiles are asked to avoid the wildlife and heed any signs to stay safe.
