Saltwater Crocodile Index.
crocodiles inhabit most of the waterways throughout the top end
of Australia's Northern Territory. Crocs have been roaming freely
for many thousands of years. Saltwater crocodiles are more likely
to be found in freshwater rivers, creeks and streams but are also
sighted in the ocean and saltwater tidal rivers. Crocodiles stalk
their prey and attack when the time is right. Crocodiles use the
element of surprise when attacking their prey. It is advisable
that if you frequent a waterhole allot, to approach the area with
caution and always from a different location.
Sometimes saltwater crocs leave visible markings on the mud, sand
or clay banks which are called slide marks.
Tourist and locals alike are not prone to being attacked and even
killed, if their not careful in and around the territory's waterways.
Crocodiles can stay submerged underwater for hours at a time and
can rise and submerge without causing a slight ripple in the water
making them hard to spot. Crocs come in many sizes from small
to 8m and even bigger.
Crocodiles can also naturally leap out of the water to snatch
low flying birds and other objects out of the air, although that
is rarely ever seen.
