Yep CF.I Suppose the mud would be a good protection against the harshness of the sun over time.
Crocs are true survivors and no doubt that sort of technique would have seen them through many difficult situations from dry outs for thousands of years.

Crocs love the big rains so they move into some usually inaccessible areas looking for an easy feed ...e.g doggys

Since my son and his mates were heading north for a fishing holiday I was drumming the watch out for crocs message hard. Do not go near the water.

Not sure how much notice teens take though specially when it is a fishing trip.

If it is a key habitat for crocs sooner or later another will take up residence ....

"Mr Carstairs said the area where the attack happened was a key estuarine habitat and traps had been set to make sure there were no more crocodiles moving in to take over the dead reptile's territory."

Croc killed

Nice pic Weary

I may be mistaken but it seems to me that every bird in that pic has got their eyes on that croc ...
Maybe they just don't want to become his next meal... wink

Should be good for his TV show. Probably get another 60 minutes gig from it. Wonder if there was any reason for taking it out other than for his ratings and reputation.

Apparently it was snatching dogs and starting to get a bit cheeky. Could be an excuse though as you say. I saw that 6o minutes gig. Couldn't believe they shuffled across the front of the trap with their backs to the water.

Walking along the Ross River first thing in the morning you can see small freshwater and some slightly larger salties in the same stretch of river near the rowing club/ Scouts/Girl Guides building. I haven't personally seen any big ones but the salties that I saw last year are about 1m long. People have reported dogs being taken right up near the dam wall as well so there must be a few bigguns in there as well.

Pretty crazy stuff. 'Apparently' she was in a croc handling training course at the sanctuary. Needs a little more training on the practical side I would say!! She seems to have escaped any permanent damage and will recover, which is good to hear.
