Coldfront was correct .That guy would have been gone if he got stuck .Knowing what your doing means make sure you can move at least.

Yep that time of year again...Crocs are starting to get frisky and the water temps are rising around Broome at the moment ... Cable beach closed Monday after sighting .Today one seen at the causeway near the airport and on another at Cable beach heading southwards...probably into the Roebuck bay.

The croc here is about 10 meters from the Broome Highway...

Both captured alive and relocated either to croc park or elsewhere. 2 & 3 metre. Probably no sightings for another 6 months now. Last wet season there were no sightings.

Northern Territorians complacent around crocs ? I though wading in to retrieve a lure was perfectly acceptable? Said no-one ever!

4 metre long croc found near Ti Tree on the The beach, on Southern Wik homelands between the Kirke and Knox rivers on Western side of the Cape York Peninsular.

Don't need much water to live in ... looks like a pigs wallow

I remember being told a story by a station hand of a croc found living in a cattle trough. It hadn't been near water since the last flood 18mths previously. Of course you have to take all croc stories with a fairly massive grain of salt but he seemed fairly legit.

Sound pretty plausible to me BG especially if swam up during a flood and had nowhere to go when it dried up. Pretty sure there was a croc spotted a long way from any permanent water supply during the floods around Brisbane /Ipswich floods a few years ago.

I've seen this in the past. Definitely plausible Desie. It would have been a great food source too until it dried right out with pigs coming in to drink.

Certainly more plausible than they took a huge croc to the middle of nowhere, dumped it in mud , untied it and took a photo wink

The bloke taking the photo with the tripod would have got the pic of century and maybe if he was lucky only shat his pants if that croc had a lunge at him from where it is there...

He is definitely within striking distance... wink

That would have given him a fright. Night time swimming is not a good idea for a number of reasons. Though crocs that far off shore are usually well down the list. Notice how the attached photo shows a very large croc. Gotta love the media.

Yep Coldie

He lucky he got off with minor injuries a 2 metre croc could have easily at the very least broken every bone in his arm not to mention serious lacerations to go with it..

Shining a torch into the crocs face and it let him go....
Might have to try that one if I'm ever in that situation..... wink

Apprently there are two small resident crocs on lizard but in reality at this time of year it could very well be a traveller that bit the diver. Always plenty in the ocean in early summer but jeez you have to be bloody unlucky to be bitten at lizard.
