Have I mentioned before that anyone who comes to the Top End is obsessed with crocodiles? Yes, you’re right, I’m sure I have.
This saltie (saltwater crocodile) was languishing in one of the aquarium tanks at the Wildlife Park recently, and from the surface you’d have been flat out seeing him…barely anything visible. You wouldn’t even get a chance to smile at him in the wild, before he’d be on top of you, taking you for a death roll then stashing you under a tree root/branch for a lunch smorgasbord later on. And just because they’re called salties doesn’t mean they aren’t in freshwater.That’s why all those warning signs are around the Top End’s waterholes.
Oh and did I mention that the tally of crocs taken from Top End waterways and the harbour reached 185 on 28 July?
