Last week I led a guided walk at Yellow Water – I was happily telling visitors about the iconic wetlands and the wealth of creatures that call them home. Right at that moment a three and a half metre ginga (estuarine crocodile) decided to illustrate my point by surfacing in front of our eyes – just metres from where we stood.
As if that weren’t impressive enough the croc had a feral pig in his jaws and proceeded to put on a 15 minute display – thrashing the pig carcass left and right, then swallowing down most of its kill!
It was a genuine ‘right place, right time’ moment shared with visitors – that we all agreed we would not forget.
