  Waiting for the crocodile hunter.

Crocodiles around...........would you?

Mind you, emphasis was made about how more children are killed by balloons in a year than there are people killed by crocodiles.

A few simple rules will keep you safe according to the experts at the Great Australian Zoo. Don't enter the lagoon, river, lake or other stretch of water known to have crocodiles. Never walk around the edge (within 2 metres) of same waters...........the crocodiles sense vibration on land and can easily lurch that distance. They are quite cumbersome outside of these limits......i.e. on land they do not move as fast.........their tails are at least half of their body length. Their most dangerous (to us) domain is by far the water's edge and in the water is where they travel quickest. Take a little care and you will live to photograph another one.

Fill this pavillion up and multiply it by 3 and a bit and you will have the number of people watching Dorothy of Wiggles fame while waiting for the crocodile hunter to do his routine.
