A CROC LOAD

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

Co­conut ad­mires the 3.8m croc­o­dile that made the news the other day when it re­gur­gi­tated (sounds ugly, is ugly) the bizarre con­tents of its stom­ach, noth­ing less than a bunch of ny­lon mesh and a tyre in­ner tube. One won­ders how it got there, of course. Per­haps there’s a tick­ing clock still left in there. One the­ory that came to Co­conut is that some­how a float in the Car­ni­vale pa­rade ended up in Dick­son In­let a long time ago and that’s how the big croc, that used to grace the ver­dant grass at the Mi­rage Coun­try Club be­fore it was re­lo­cated to Har­ley’s, came to have this strange bal­last in its belly.
