’There are more crocs this year’

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - Shane Ni­chols

YACHTIE Mark Hem­ing­son has been around Dick­son In­let for years, on and off, and says he has never seen so many croc­o­diles as he has lately.

On Fri­day he was mo­tor­ing in his tin­nie down the In­let to the public pon­toon when he al­most ran over a 3m croc. “I thought it was a log.” He said he has seen peo­ple dan­gling their feet in the wa­ter around places like the pon­toon.

“This year I’ve seen more crocs than at any other time, and I don’t know why,” he said.

“There seems to be a huge in­flux of them.

“I’ve been back in Port about six months and I’ve seen so many.”
