Jailhouse Croc: Elvis the Crocodile Marks 55th Birthday With 'Death Roll'

Elvis, a huge saltwater crocodile at the Australian Reptile Park, celebrated his 55th birthday by devouring a whole cow’s leg and performing a “death roll”.

The famous crocodile, who weighs over 500 kg and is 4.5 meters in length, shows no sign of slowing down. Video shared by the park on January 12 shows Elvis as he tussles with keepers over his birthday treat before performing a series of rolls.

Elvis gained worldwide attention in 2011 when he grabbed and stole his keeper’s lawnmower, earning him the title of “Australia’s Crankiest Crocodile”, the reptile park said.
