I’m completely terrified of reptiles. The reptile house at the San Diego Zoo was a relative nightmare for me even with the ginormous pythons and humongous Komodo dragons behind inches-thick pieces of glass.
This, however, appears to be my absolute worst nightmare of a tour! WTF?!?!?
Croc stunt pic causes concern on NT river
A stunning snap of a huge leaping crocodile has caused a stir among Northern Territory tour guides, who claim the stunt is “disturbing and dangerous”.
Concerned observers said the image of the 5.5m saltie, named Brutus, attacking a slab of meat demonstrates a worrying trend among some operators who want to give tourists a closer experience with nature.
Tour operator Tony Blums, owner of the Jumping Crocodile Cruises on the Adelaide River, said the leaping crocodile stunt was staged in a way that was irresponsible and risked lives.
“They are very gung-ho. The croc is far too big for the size of the boat they are approaching it with.
“It is disturbing. A croc that size can fully flick itself up onto the boat from there, and that would cause some panic.”
One thought on “on HOLY jeez … !”
that thing is huge.
