Going Rogue

Australias Saltwater Crocodiles are the biggest most fearsome reptiles alive. Theyre 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, Australias Salties have bounced back thanks to conservation measures. Now, with over 100,000 of them in Northern Territory alone, managing their numbers is the responsibility of the five fearless members of the specialist Crocodile Management Unit.
