That is me, on the back of Krys, a 30 ft Croc.

Taken in Normanton, in the Gulf of Carpenteria, last year.
We breed them big, in Oz

There is a foto in amongst everything that explains what, when, and how.
Normanton itself is situated at the bottom o the Gulf of Carpenteria. Population 800 - 1000 people, many of which are Aborigines.
And back 30 years or so ago, Croc. hunters.
Krys is the centre of attraction in the town
Don't know why, it's frighten huge

just remember that Croc's were hunted ruthlessly, in Northern Oz, right up till the late 60's, when they made it illegal.
Now the numbers have skyrocketed, and the young males ( the big ones ) are being chased out by even biggeer ones.
I am not sure just how far South they have come. but it is a long way.
They are slowly making their way South, towards Brisbane.

When a predatory species like the croc loses it's own predator ( man )

numbers will always rise exponentially...just a matter of time.

Same with the wolf, coyote, and wild pigs here in North America.

Wolves were almost extinct because man hunted them to the brink...

now there are controlled hunts again !! Don't even get me started

on coyotes and pigs...big population booms this past decade ! The

coyote is open season in most states now...pigs likewise !
