A Croc Story In the NT News ? No Way , Who’d of Thunk It ? !

I opened my copy of the NT news today and what did I see ? Surprise surprise there was a big fat crocodile staring me in the face .. well maybe not quite staring at me as its eyes were covered in tape but I sure as hell couldn’t miss the picture – it was half a page !

As you would know by now from reading my blog Territorians are very proud of these gigantic killing machines and at least once a week they are on the front page of the paper . In fact if there hadn’t of been a murderous gunman on the loose yesterday then this croc probably would have made the cover of today’s paper ..


Pic : – this pic does not do this croc justice – he is 4.83 meters long

The story behind this bad boy is that he has been harassing fishing boats in the Corroboree Billabong for a while now. The latest incident happened 2 days ago whenย  a group of mates were out fishing in a 5.5 meter fiberglass boat. The curious croc snuck up on them and gave them a scare as he bashed his body and tail against the side of the boat. He stalked the boat for two hours popping his head up every ten minutes to check on his potential meal and giving them the evil eye. The blokes that reported it did so because the croc was nearly the size of the boat and if it was a smaller boat they probably would have been dinner for the croc who has now been captured and will be taken to a local croc farm to breed . Lets just hope he doesn’t pull an Elvis and eat his potential girlfriend …. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Elvis proves he is still the King

Ok this didn’t happen in the Territory , but Elvis the crocodile is originally a NT born and bred crocodile. He was trapped in the Darwin Harbor few years ago (because he was climbing into fishing boats !) and sent to a Sydney wildlife park.

Elvis has a reputation for being one of the grumpiest old crocs in Australia.After he was caught in the Darwin Harbor he was sent to a croc farm where he ate 2 female crocs. This was when they decided to send him down south ๐Ÿ˜‰

This video displays Elvis’s famous temper – he wanted that lawnmower and wasn’t letting go ! Also check out the size of those teeth !
It took the zoo keepers a couple of hours and a whole heap of kangaroo meat before they could retrieve the mower. I personally wouldn’t get in the pen with him whether he was distracted or not – this boy is 5 meters long and weighs half a tonne.
