In Australia caught two huge salt-water crocodiles, which destroyed the cattle in the Northern territories of the country. Reported by ABC News.
The length of one of the reptiles was 4.4 metres and the other 4.3 meters. Their fangs were only slightly shorter than the palm of an adult male. Catcher crocodiles Roger Matthews dubbed predators and Gobbo CROC in honor of their friends who refused to help him.
Matthews told the newspaper the NT News, which used a special hook to attract the attention of crocodiles. When one of the predators looked out of the water, he threw over his face the noose. The same operation catcher repeated with another reptile.
The crocodiles were so large that transporting them needed a tractor. Matthews failed to find a farm willing to shelter animals, so they had to kill him. He plans to sell their pelts and skulls.
Matthews argues that the population of crocodiles is increasing. “It shows that they migrate, and there’s another, quoted by ABC News. — We meet them in places where crocodiles never was.”
Saltwater crocodile is one of the largest predators on the planet. Males of this species reach seven meters in length and can weigh up to two tons. They are found on the Eastern coast of India, in many countries in South-East Asia, Papua New Guinea and Northern Australia.
In October it was reported that saltwater crocodiles in the Australian state of Queensland have become more aggressive and move closer to the cities.
