Nos Crocodiles Australiens ont faim pour plus de touristes, (pour leur rendre visite, naturellement).


Ils préfèrent le goût des touristes Britanniques et Brésiliens, mais les touristes de la Floride sont toujours bienvenus. Ce petit camarade vit dans le Adelaïde River, qui est dans le Territoire du Nord, tout à fait loin d'Adelaïde. SA.

Our Australian crocodiles are hungry for more tourists, (to visit them naturally).
They prefer the taste of both British and Brazilian tourists, but Tourists from Florida are always welcome.
This little fellow lives in the Adelaide River, which is in the Northern Territory, quite a long way from Adelaide. S.A.

I seen them feeding the crocs in FL on a trip we took years ago. I think it was in Kissimee (spelling?), FL. This photo reminded me of that.

I believe they feed these with donkey meat to make them grow bigger. This little one is only 5 metres long.

I'm sure British, Brazilian and Americans would love to feed it too!!

Oh My!!! look at the size of that jaw!!!
I fear for Lynn and me, you know the big nasty boys won't think twice before saving themselves and throwing us in front of one of those.

Do you know what is Michael's technique to scare away the crocos? I can't reveal it here, you'd have to go to Rio to know his BIG secret.

Excellent shot, but I loved the description even better! LOL

lv2scpbk : In Florida we only have little alligators (fresh water) not crocodiles (normally salt water I believe). Wouldn't want to be too near either to tell you the truth. That is why we always have a few Brits and Brazilians nearby just in case...

I remember to have seen some nice "salties" on the Aussie East Coast, just before Cairns...Frightening.

Wow! some crocodile. I don't suppose anybody swims in that water!

Well! M. Benaut and Michael how cruel, cruel indeed. I am now too frightened to go to bed just in case i have a nightmare about them. "keep Brits and Brazilians nearby" indeed and "prefer the taste of British and Brazilian". The picture here is indelibly imprinted upon my brain. Unfortunately. Monica and i respect Michael so much we will push him further along the queue ahead of us. T he croc looks scary and will not take kindly to my perfume i think. Saviour perhaps.

Monica said...

Lynn I'm pretty scared too. Just look at the croco's big mouth... I'm crying with fear like a little girl now!

Michael said...

Hmmmm....but Lynn, do tell...I believe I read over in Paris that you are now out of this perfume. Will the croc be able to detect more clearly the scent of a fresh and tender delicacy? Better get a restock of the repellent soon!

lynn said...

Ooooh yes Michael it IS a worry. Purse won't stretch to Jean Paul Gaultier at the moment though. I'm in big trouble i think! Perhaps Monica will give me a spray of hers.
