Saltwater Crocodiles Australia
(Crocodylus porosus)

They've been around for millions of years and are regarded as one of the most successful predators on earth. They sit at the top of the food chain as an apex predator and today they are in increasing numbers in Australia.

The Saltwater Crocodile can be traced back to their relatives prior to the dinosaurs they are also related to the giant Archosaurs which can be traced back over 240 million years ago to the Triassic period in our earth’s history. A survivor the saltwater crocodile has survived the ice ages and the shift of the earth’s continents. A large male modern day saltwater crocodile can grow larger than 20 feet in length. One unconfirmed report put the length of one large male called KRYS at 28 feet in length.

Today here in Northern Australia the saltwater crocodile is now in large numbers. A successful breeding program restocked our coastlines, rivers with this giant reptile and now extreme caution should be taken when near the habitat of the Australian saltwater crocodile.

The Australian saltwater crocodile can be found anywhere in tropical Australia and is not restricted to living in saltwater.

This web site offers information for anyone traveling to or living anywhere in tropical Australia. Nearly all crocodile attacks can be avoided by using common knowledge and having the information that will prevent you from putting yourself in a situation that you can be taken by a saltwater crocodile.

Here in Australia we have nicknamed the saltwater crocodile as “crocs” or “salties”. We now live with large numbers of these reptiles present in our coastal areas and waterways.
