I saw a video of a crocodile swimming, and they’re pretty slow? How fast can a crocodile swim?

Thanks to their powerful tails, Saltwater crocodiles can swim from 15 to 18 mph (24 to 29 km/h) in short bursts. Of course, other crocodiles would have different speeds.
For comparison, the record for the fastest swimming speed for us humans is at 6 mph (9.66 kph) by Michael Phelps.
So maybe in the video you saw, the crocodile was just chilling.
