My sister Sally got this near miss while recording feeding at the TOWNSVILLE BILLABONG SANCTUARY. This was one rather scary moment for all watching, Jacques the trainer was explaining how Crocs are opportunistic hunters and will wait until their prey comes to them until they attack as they tire quickly. Jacques was also explaining that Crocs are not very fast nor do they have logical thinking brains, they just sit, wait and attack when they are close enough to launch.... WELL after that speech he put it to the test when he went to walk out to a section of the swamp with the intent of using a tree as cover, the Croc rushed him and Jacques fell over, giving the crock a very close chance of getting a bit of extra lunch!!! Over all our experience was amazing with Croc, Koala, Snake and Wombat handling as well as feeding Kangaroos and other Australian Native Animals all part of our day, the sanctuary s a defiantly a recommended visit point if your ever coming to Townsville.
