Crocs Bite!

The crocodile has long been a dominant predator in the wetland regions of Australia. Powerful and stealthy, the saltwater (estuarine) crocodile has little to fear—and that includes humans. More than 80,000 crocodiles are found in the coastal and tidal areas of rivers, as well as floodplains and freshwater reaches of rivers. In fact, they can be found in the larger rivers, lagoons, and billabongs right across northern Australia. Attacks on people are rare and deaths few (an average of one a year), but you should observe all no-swimming and warning signs, and treat crocs with respect.
