Locals in Queensland's Gulf country have reported sightings of an 8m long crocodile in the area.
Pastor Elton Thompson says he took photographs of slide marks made by the crocodile at a local river, giant paw and claw marks have also been found. "A few people have seen it in water. They're all saying it's about that size, if not bigger. It's pretty much the biggest croc they've ever seen," he said.
A pastor says he has evidence that an 8m croc lurks in a river in Queensland's Gulf country. Pastor Elton Thompson said he took pictures of slide marks from the crocodile last Wednesday on the Norman River at Normanton.

that's far from a huge surprise really......considering here in Australia we have roughly 80,000 crocodile's protected from hunting in the wild

I would just like to point out that 8m is 26.3 feet not 24.
