A massive crocodile is thought to have snatched and eaten a man from his boat in a popular national park in Australia.

Human remains were found inside a large saltwater crocodile after a search was conducted for a missing 62-year-old man at Kakadu National Park on Saturday.

Local broadcaster ABC reports that the man's wife, son and daughter-in-law were with him at the time of the attack.

The crocodile, measuring more than 15 feet in length, was one of two that were shot around a mile from the point the man is thought to have been attacked.
