Croc spotting

Another day and another crocodile cover story for the local paper. It does tend to incense certain people after a while, but on the whole it sells more papers and helps to keep the local population thinking about crocs.

The cover pic shows a large crocodile at the local nature reserve of Fogg Dam, a place that supports a large number of crocs but they rarely get seen. Trapping in this area is more of a public relations exercise. If people don't see crocs then at least they see the trap!

In other croc news a small 1 metre crocodile, and I'm guessing it would have been a freshwater croc was spotted on the banks of the Katherine river near a caravan park. Wow, whats next, a news story on spiders being found in trees?
