One of the Dangers of the North are Crocodiles

Denise is quick to explain that Fogg Dam's beauty belies a quiescent danger. As we drive in at dawn, we spot a flurry at the surface, followed by concentric waves that rock the bank-side vegetation - something very large just moved metres from the carcass of a drowned wallaby. It's well known that a crocodile nearly 5m long has lived here for years. All that time, the traps set for it have provided little more than a convenient place for darters - fish-eating birds with a snake-like head - to dry their wings. You're safe though if you stand on one of the several viewing platforms.
