I prefer to live in a place where humans are the apex predators. Australians, however, are more adventurous. Jacob Brant sent this picture to Northern Territory News:
"4.8m croc caught at Palumpa yesterday," he wrote.
Senior Parks And Wildlife Ranger Tommy Nichols says police and council officers trapped and shot the croc in a billabong on the outskirts of Palumpa, about 240km south-west of Darwin.
"We had a report the other day that there was a large crocodile there that was menacing the kids," the ABC reported Mr Nichols as saying.
The croc catchers needed a backhoe to load the beast into the back of a ute.
