Lake Placid

What a great spot for a horror movie! Walking up the river beside the lake I snapped this big fellow in the upper Barron river before its presence had hit the newspapers. S/he has to be over three metres long yet has grown to that size without devouring a single child at this popular swimming hole. More about the many walks in the Barron Gorge later:

PS: I feel a little responsible for this poor guy’s death. After news of the ‘offending’ croc hit the newspapers, the authorities shot it (being completely unable to catch it apparently). Good heavens, there are warnings everywhere not to go near the water. People will be eaten mostly by invisible crocs really: http://www.skynews.com.au/news/national/qld/2017/09/05/authority-evading-crocodile-culled-in-nth-qld.html
