Number of crocs in Australian waters soars

4 posts in this topic

A record haul of man-eating saltwater crocodiles was removed from waterways in the "Top End" of Australia last year, confirming that numbers of the feared reptiles are ballooning.

Wildlife rangers captured 314 of the estuarine crocodiles – or "salties" – in 2012, the equivalent of more than six a week in the northernmost section of the Northern Territory. Of those, 215 were fished out of Darwin Harbour, in the centre of a city that is home to nearly 130,000 people. The largest was a 16ft male, caught in a swamp in outer Darwin back in April.

More prey (aka idiot tourists who can't read the "don't swim here, there are crocodiles" signs).
