The crocodile population of tropical Australia has exploded in recent decades. How are people learning to live with the creatures in their back gardens?

From behind a steel fence, a fully-grown adult crocodile - Harold, a heavyweight at 4.6m (15ft) long - peers at me suspiciously.

Despite the security, it is unnerving to be so close to such a fearsome predator, especially one that won't take his eyes off me.

But in Australia's Northern Territory, armour-plated saltwater crocodiles like Harold are thriving in creeks, rivers and swamps.

See...the solution would be to mount a good chihuahua defense. Once the crocs have had their fill, they'll swim off. ^_^

I would hate it if one of them was in my yard watching me.  I think I would have a good idea what was on his mind and I wouldn't like it.
