I reckon it is the easiest way to commit suicide without it looking like suicide.
It's a shame we do not have those lovely animals in North America. No one believes me when I say they can eat a grizzly bear for a snack.
Hi Tom, you are dead right; they just pulled this one out near the City of Darwin. Regards Ray
What do they do with them?
Hi Nick, they put the big ones into Croc Farms as breeding stock; There is a very big Market for Croc Meat and Leather. You can buy the meat in the local Supermarkets; we used to shoot our own supply but it is now illegal to shoot Crocs unless you are in danger. There are Thousands of Crocs in the Elizabeth River about a mile from me. Regards Ray
Buy your own. I don't it is now too expensive. Regards Ray
It seems a shame to kill the chap after he lived so long and made such a long journey.
Hi Nick, the problem is that they breed as fast as Rabbits and lay 40 to 60 eggs at a time. Regards Ray
The reality is that most of the eggs are stolen from the nests for use in crocodile farms.
It always gets warm under my collar when humans think that everything else here is merely for us to exploit or make extinct. I don't buy the lies that they are out of control and breeding like rabbits unless of course they are rabbits.
Hi, I know about egg collecting, it is not lies that they are breeding like crocodiles and the population of them is increasing. Regards Ray
They always bred like crocodiles. The main difference is that they are no longer being hunted to extinction. They only look like their numbers are increasing because more people now live in the same area.
It is no good being emotive about things; I live in the NT amongst Crocodiles. Crocodiles - NT.GOV.AU
About 10 years ago I was fishing with a friend on the banks of the Finniss River; the Toyota 4 wheel Drive was just behind us. I said to my mate that looks like a Croc about 30 feet away; he said nah it is just a rock and he threw a stone at it; that really stirred it up and it approached very quickly; back in the Ute and end of fishing and off to the Pub. Regards Ray
No point being foolish with crocodiles. Unless one is intent on committing suicide. However, they can't be as bad as all of that since the humans have managed to increase their population at the cost to the crocodile. I'd be more wary of box and Irukandji jellyfish. For like sharks, the crocodile you don't see is the most dangerous.
This man is about to go up against all of that.
Crocodiles, stingers, tides await man planning swim across Darwin Harbour
Hi, I agree with you; that's why I don't go in the Water in the NT even taking into account that I have a life saving swimming qualification. Regards Ray
I don't think how well you can swim would be of any use against a crocodile intent upon snapping you up. I also doubt that you could save a crocodile's life in the water.
Perhaps if the croc were starving, you could help. But only if the weather is warm enough to rev up the creature's digestion.
