Estuarine Crocodile by TarJakArt Estuarine Crocodile by TarJakArt

This 4.5m (~15ft) male estuarine crocodile was attracted by our tour guide with a chicken carcass and reared up showing its jaws and teeth to good effect.

The tour was on a boat on the Adelaide River east of Darwin in Australia's Northern Territory. All the crocodiles in this river are wild and this was only one of around 5 similar sized animals we saw in a stretch of only a few kilometres of our launch point down river. Being on the tour we were able to get within only a few metres of these amazing predators.

And yes he did get the chicken in the end.

It certainly is a beautiful animal.  I was struck by the power, speed and agility of an animal so large as well as the colour of its eyes.
