Just wanted to know if anyone here had any close "experiences" or images with/of the mugger crocs while fishing. As far as I know there have been no human fatalities recorded in the areas angled down south and the crocs pretty much mind their own business.
I have seen several large crocs (well over 9-10 feet) neat Haira and one night counted about 13 with a torch at Forbes Sagar in and around the water. P a fishing friend has been wading across a channel and had a croc leap into the water next to him from the bullrushes on the bank he was approaching (near Haira). The croc was trying to flee and took off with its tail touching him as it sped away. I think P has never been the same and his casts were all over the place for awhile after.
The image above is from a dead croc we found near Haira that had been killed by a larger croc.
