Plus did you see last wk. a man sport fishing in an Austrailan river got killed by a croc they assume. What gets me they showed a search boat looking for the missing man... Looked like a 12 ft car topper!!! Man if there's an 6 to 8 ft croc as the news report sad I would not be in a small cartopper.
Don't mean to hijack or sidetrack.... but I was just down in Auz while this "attack" happened. Although I felt for the 60+ year old bloke I was real happy to report back that it wasn't me. :naughty: But I WAS treading VERY lightly at a distance from any river systems we were near. Most of the time I was frolicking in the surf with my surf board, cunning and smarts to protect me.
The guy went to check his crab traps in a river.....didn't return and all they found was what appeared to be drag marks on the bank. I think his sandals and the odd other personal belonging were found in the following days/week. I was up in Northern Queensland last week and they had trapped 3 crocs that they were going to be doing x-rays on to see if there were human remains inside.
Oh.....and Arima.....they weren't 6 to 8 ft......they were looking at crocs that were roughly up to 6 meters....or ~18ft. These were not small crocs.....the smallest trapped if I recall correctly was about 10' and was quickly ruled out as being "too small" to be the "culprit".
When I left Auz this past Sunday morning they hadn't yet released results of the x-ray's as they were too happen in the early part of this week.
