    why would you buy a crocodile for a 12 yr old? once the kid moves out they are likely going to have to look after it, well maybe not anymore...

    I think it's more funny because they made a big article over the fact there's an escapee hatchling freshy in Darwin lol

    The NT news are obliged to have a crocodile story every week during the tourist season.

    Unfortunately, but I wonder if rather than escaped, maybe stolen from above by our feathery friends????

    there's always silly news about crocs in the paper in Darwin. lol
    My dad lives there in I remember reading many stories on my first visit there about people finding crocs in their pools.
    Even one about the local pool shutting down because they found a baby saltie in the pool...

    so to the locals its not news. lol

    Croc attacks are supposed to boast tourist numbers

    Sighting a croc in darwin goes hand in hand like bread and butter.

    Must have been a slow news day.
