About the Show

Australia’s Saltwater Crocodiles are the biggest most fearsome reptiles alive. They’re big, brash, fast and capable of consuming any animals that enter their territory – including humans.  On the break of extinction as recently as the 1970s, Australia’s “Salties” have bounced back thanks to conservation measures. Now, with over 100,000 of them in Northern Territory alone, managing their numbers is e responsibility of the five fearless members of the specialist Crocodile Management Unit.  The Croc Catchers will follow this team in their busiest time of the year.
