Croc goes for a swim

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - - NEWS -

A CROC­O­DILE was spot­ted swim­ming off The Strand in Townsville yes­ter­day morn­ing.

Joanna Hen­der­son es­ti­mated the croc to be 2-2.5m long. She said it was swim­ming against the tide off the point at about 11am and was quite close to the shore.

She said there were swim­mers in the stinger nets at the time but the croc­o­dile glided past them to­wards the port.

Ms Hen­der­son said it was the first time she had seen a croc­o­dile off the pop­u­lar Townsville beach.

“I had a swim there ear­lier this morn­ing. He was prob­a­bly down there too,” she said.

“That’s the first time I’ve ever seen one so close.”
