Looks great, will have to find a viewable copy. My dad spent a lot of time in the northern part of West OZ and then the Northern Territory before ww2 and was familiar with very large salt water crocodiles before they were shot out by hunters and he said that the best way to stop one charging at you was a 12 gauge shotgun into their open mouth. Back then it was reasonably common to get old ones that were 20 feet long and over. Since they have been protected about 30 years ago they are now almost epidemic and are moving a long way up waterways so you are at risk being anywhere near their habitat.

Don't go swimming in the rivers up north at night time and mostly in the daylight either or you will end up as a crocodile's breakfast.
