SNAP!


On our way to Kakadu National Park,
we stopped and hopped on board
The Spectacular Jumping Crocodile Cruise.
'Guaranteed crocodile spotting'.
And indeed these creatures heard
the boat engines and made their way out of
the shelter of the banks
to jump for dangled meat.
Wild and untamed, but creatures of habit.
I reckon they can tell the time
by the boats.
The wild kites also recognise the engines,
and fly past to pick up thrown pieces of meat.
The kids loved the whole thing,
and I love that they loved it.

Have a happy Tuesday.

I haven't been on this trip for years. Aren't there alot of them though! Such pre-historic and cold creatures.

I'm so glad you got to see the jumping crocs! It sure is a great trip and an absolute must when in NT. We loved it, and it is quite interesting to see just how far they can jump :)
