This freshwater crocodile, on the banks of the Fitzroy River in Geike Gorge, was not all that happy about having his peace disturbed!

The freshwater crocodile (Crocodylus johnsoni), also known as the Australian freshwater crocodile, Johnston’s crocodile or colloquially as freshie, is a species of reptile endemic to Australia. Found in the northern regions of Australia, it is much smaller than the other Australian species, the saltwater crocodile, which is responsible for attacks on people.

Although they will bite if disturbed or feel threatened, freshwater crocodiles are not known as man-eaters and their jaws are not big enough to seriously harm humans. They will usually ignore people when sunning themselves beside a swimming hole, so long as they have a relatively peaceful spot.
