Alligators never bothered me. Crocodiles are a different beast!

The last of the large reptiles....

Wow.

Australia isn't as dense as most of the Asia Pacific region - most of their population is on the coasts. The Northern Territory isn't a huge population center - which this croc happily spent his life in the marshlands/mangroves there.

It's a baby...900Kg 1,900lb crocs have been caught in the past.

closest I've come to a man eating crocodile was trying crocodile jerky...that stuff is pure filth.

Incidentally they will do a "Dundee's Son" movie this year.
Stunning aussie blonde would play in it. It rhymes with Harley....

Sent a copy of that post to my cousin in Brisbane. Bigger than the eleven foot Gator they just caught here in Central Florida.
