In the northeastern corner of Austrailia where the top end meets the sea, lurks a relic from the days of the dinosaurs, the saltwater crocodile which is one of the most fearsome predators on the face of the Earth. However these predators have a sweeter side to them, like most wild animals they just want to be left alone t0 feed, breed and rear their young.
Crocs are complex creatures, finely tuned to their surroundings but considering their daunting appearance it is easy to see why their reputation goes before them. They are the worlds largest terrestrial carnivore growing up to 6 metres in length and weighing up to 1000 kilos.
In this Steve Irwin special we see him journey to Austrailia’s far north to try and capture a nuisance crocodile and teach it a lesson before releasing it back into the wild, all whilst educating us on the wonders of these magnificent animals.
