Very interesting

Thats interesting Bill.  Must be being kept very quiet around town.  You'd be hard pressed to see anything in the creeks at the moment its that stirred up.

One was shot off Waroora last

Fri, 2011-05-06 11:22

One was shot off Waroora last year (or maybe the year before - cant remember). It was obviously very lost/sick whatever, but goes to show that there arent any real boundaries to aquatic animals' habitat.

You never know, maybe someday people might even catch marlin out off Dunsborough!

Not suprising, when you think

Fri, 2011-05-06 11:58

Not suprising, when you think that their natural historic range used to be all the way down to Carnarvon/Shark Bay area. Obviously thats was before they were indiscriminantly hunted  from the 40's to the 70's.

Hey if the climate is right and there is food, and the fact their populations are now coming back(very well it seems), of course they are going to range back to their original areas. The problem is in their absence more people have moved to these areas that have never know Crocodiles to be there. And this is where the problem is, when a large croc moves into and area previously thought to be croc free. A cause for concern. When i lived it the N.T it was easy. Assume ANY water even the ocean, lakes, and springs had crocs in them.

Absolutely, growing up in

Absolutely, growing up in Gove the old man would always say he would let the dogs in the water, then the women, then the kids and by then it would be getting late and he was almost out of beer, so no point getting in the water!

He still thinks he is funny when he tells that joke....
