You may have seen the video circulating on WhatsApp.

It shows a crocodile lying still on the beach surrounded by stray dogs before the reptile suddenly chomps on one of the dogs and heads into the water. The video is no Jurassic World: Dominion but was interesting enough to go viral.

Whoever shared the video said it happened at Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal.

Except it did not.

The video was originally posted by a Facebook user named Mad Ali last Friday (June 11).

Mad Ali said he saw a crocodile being fed a piece of chicken from a kitchen window in a resort in Kinabatangan. The croc did not eat it all and left the remains on the beach before returning to the water to wait.

The village dogs were trying to get to the leftovers when the reptile attacked.

Kinabatangan is in Sabah, Malaysia.

Last month, a man was killed by a crocodile as he was crossing a river in Kinabatangan.
