have to wonder if this is a random attack , or a croc that has been conditioned or learned where food can eb grabbed from ??

given croc can learn prey/food behaviour and stalk their prey by observing its habits

Evil bastards

They come across as all quiet and slow but when they want to move in a hurry it's game over for whatever's in its path. I'm more worried about the crocs up here than the sharks.

 Wonder where abouts on the south. Certainly some decent ones in there.

I used to fish the south aligator heaps, great system, heaps of big guys in there. However the next system was the Adelaide River, the one where for 20 years they have been teaching them to jump to get food from boats,... matter of time really.

 In between the South and the Adelaide is the Mary. Pretty sure the Mary is highest concentration of crocs in the world.

Poor info in the reporting, I remember fishing the south alligator years ago and would hardly see a croc, different story at night though. Sounds like a confident croc, if it had of happened at places like Adelaide River, Cahills crossing, Finnis, Daly I probably would not have given it a second thought.
Given the presence of fishing has increased year after year and croc's are protected and increasing in numbers it will become way more frequent.
Back in the late 80's, early 90's most people had a gun in their boat and to see a dead croc was quite common, different times now though.
Only a few years before I got to Darwin people would swim in the Daly like they would at Moore River with boats lined up, bbq's, eskies and kids everywhere.

 FRom memory crocs were still being hunted... thankfully...


ON an inebriated ANZAC weekend at Adelaide River, a colleague and I went wading in lagoons looking for crocs...


Two weeks ago my wife and I found them.... on a 'jumping crocs cruise'...

  This one was the biggest we saw at about 4m
