Crocodile danger prevention
I am very intrigued by what you are writing about crocodiles. Indeed these animals are not very well known in Europe. Therefore, I have some questions that, I think, will seem naïve, even perhaps stupid for an inhabitant of Australia like you.
For example, concerning Andy's chasm or Grotto, how can you know that such waterhole is free of crocodile. Doesn't the habitat of crocodiles ever change from year to another?
In other part, you are talking about fishing. But how can we fish in water where salties are living when I have read later that crocodiles are very fast and agile to catch its prey. Must we be mad for fishing or crocodiles don't eat people hanging fishing rods?
Another thing I don't understand : Why above the dams it is free of crocodiles, since I suppose, the lake is supplied with a river upstream.
Last thing : How far from the water, are the crocodiles wandering? Can we find crocodiles strolling more than 100m from the riverbank?
Despite numerous readings, I don't manage to get an idea about crocodile danger prevention.
If that doesn't bother you to answer me, maybe I could reassure my wife who starts to question if this trip deserves the risk to feed the local fauna.
Thanks for answering.
