Prince Harry was reportedly quick to jump in and help out.

Despite the danger of the activity, Harry was all hands on deck, helping to remove a hook that was trapped in the reptile’s mouth.

The crocodile was understandably pretty angry though, and lashed out, leaving Harry to jump out of its way just in the nick of time.

“Harry got completely involved in the action despite it being very dangerous,” the onlooker explained.

Harry has been a massive help on various conservation trips.

He continued: “The man has balls! The whole time you’re thinking how you could get bitten as the croc was not tranquillised and he could seriously hurt you at any stage.

“But Harry just got stuck in, helped tie it up and bring it into shore.

Witnesses say the group worked together to remove the hook, with someone eventually having to saw it off before they let the creature wander back to the water.

It was THIS BIG!

One of the rescuers says that all those present couldn’t believe how gung-ho Harry had been.

“Harry was as hands-on the whole time. We were very impressed about how involved he was,” an onlooker remarked, before adding that he was a very quick learner.

The fifth-in-line to the British throne had been engaged in an operation to rescue elephants that were being hunted by poachers when they spotted the trapped croc.

Harry’s always eager to get in on the action. Watch him fly a WWII Spitfire in the clip below.
