The most amazing underwater pictures in the world have been revealed---including a remarkable close-up snap of a crocodile. More than 6,000 pictures were entered for the underwaterphotography.com contest across 17 categories---from macro close-ups to wide angle shots. Watch the video above to see the winning shots. The UK’s Tom St. George scooped a gold in the Wide Angle/Marine Life category with his shot of a American Crocodile in Banco Chinchorro, Mexico, so close you can count the teeth. St. George said, "These are one of the larger species of crocodile, although they are not particularly aggressive." Fellow Brit Christopher Llewellyn also got gold in the Wide Angle/Wrecks section for the spooky staircase on the MV Karwela ferry wreck in Gozo, Malta. A huge school of big eye jacks in Mexico swirling around a diver won Jason Sintek from Turks and Caicos islands Wide Angle/Divers gold. Website owner Tal Mor, who runs the competition, said, "Winning here, or even just being placed, is Underwater Photography's most coveted accolade because it says you succeeded in the most competitive environment there is, against the top talent of the moment.” Credit:SWNS
