Incredible footage has emerged of a massive crocodile being casually shooed off an outback road.
The video taken at Sweets Lagoon in the Northern Territory, shows the huge crocodile lying across the road before Outback Wrangler star Matt Wright directs it back towards the water.
Just like he would to a household pet, Mr Wright encourages the croc to get off the road, saying ‘good boy’ when the 16-foot reptile slides back into the water.
The crocodile is over 4.5metres long but Mr Wright simply sums the situation up saying: ‘he’s not moving.’
As he begins to get the massive crocodile out of the way he coaxes it on saying: ‘go on mate!’
‘Get out, go on, come on!’
After what most would categorise as a fairly tense situation he simply says: ‘alright, let’s go.’
The crocodile known as ‘Otis’ is the resident alpha male at Sweets Lagoon and was ‘sunning itself during the wet season’.

Mr Wright has been working with crocodiles for over 25 years, and has his own National Geographic show, Outback Wrangler.
‘I know these creatures so well and have the experience and training to work with dangerous reptiles,’ he said.
‘I work with these crocodiles on a daily basis but even Otis at 16 feet long scares me.’
His warned people ‘Be crocwise. When visiting the NT, look at all signs carefully. Don’t put yourself in situations where crocs may be.’
