Monster 15ft crocodile caught in Australia

Post by Goose55 » Tue Jul 10, 2018 9:39 am

Monster 15ft crocodile finally caught after eight-year hunt in Australia. Saltwater crocodiles are a common feature of Australia's tropical north and kill an average of two people a year.

PSSH...We have the skull of a 20’ croc mounted in our main office in PNG . One of my missionary friends (now retired) got it with the folks from the tribe he lived with.

In fairness, however, a 15’ croc coming at me would call for a new pair of underpants.

It took them 8 years to capture that beast weighing 1320 pounds. With on average 2 humans being killed by them every year no doubt this one had his turn. Just a couple bites and your gone.

Well, now that people are starting to call for an end to crocodile special protections, I may need to go get Onyx and take him croc hunting someday.

Poor croc being sent to a croc farm. No more hunting for him. :(
