The croc is performing a manoeuvre commonly known as a death roll. In fact, of the 25 extant crocodilian species, including alligators, gharials, and caimans, all but one of them have been observed doing this behaviour, which is done to "subdue and dismember prey", according to a research paper on the topic.

Steve might have other ideas.
