Crocodiles in Australia: On the Street!

Crocs in Cairns

I have mentioned crocodiles quite a lot on this blog, but as I live in Brisbane I’ve never seen one in the wild and it’s very unlikely that I ever will this far south in the state.

But in Far North Queensland, or FNQ as it’s known, crocodile sightings are becoming more and more common. There is a very good reason for that, which I will explain in a post coming soon.

In the meantime, here’s a short quiz.

Q. What do you do when a crocodile emerges from a drain and is seen loitering near a bus stop in one of the main streets in town?

A. You confine it with the use of brooms, chuck a towel over its head, put a rubber band around its mouth, pick him up, jump into a waiting car and, having secured your seatbelt, you take him away.

Don’t believe me? Take a look…….

Aaaah! He was just a baby!

Life in Australia, what it’s really like.

      I don’t know but he seems to have got himself a taxi in the end!
