Barra lures clever croc

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

ONE clever croc at Wonga Beach knew which side its barra is but­tered on.

The three-me­tre croc­o­dile was re­cently “res­cued” from a Wonga Beach bar- ra­mundi farm where it was pulled from one of the ponds.

It is thought the fe­male croc­o­dile had en­tered the farm through a storm water drain that runs into the Dain­tree River and then found her way into the farm - and the ready sup­ply of fresh barra.

The free-load­ing croc now calls the Dain­tree Wild Zoo home.
