Faced with the situation, Heim began to move very slowly to avoid attracting the lizard’s attention. That is how he was able to reach the shore without the animal attacking him again and he quickly called 911 for help.

Heim indicated that he was diving because he was looking for shark teeth as it is one of his great hobbies; He also indicated that it was he who made the mistake by invading the crocodile’s space and that it was most likely a female and that he acted like this because he could have been taking care of her eggs, since they are in mating season.
