Your enthusiasm is remarkable, and it gets everyone interested. I am in the UK and we do have some wildlife but nothing like you have. I cried buckets during your fires at the thought of those poor animals. When I was much younger I belonged to a group that did some things I suppose could be called illegal to prevent the cruelty that still goes on by Big Pharma

Humans are so selfish for wanting to eliminate Crocs from their own home, good thing there's still good people around (although few)

Remove the crocs?!! Then what? Something devilish will spawn instead and ruin the river and the land, bringing infestation and diseases. Have things like that not occurred before?

You see snapping turtle here in Oklahoma all the time. Which for those abroad. It's the mid southern region of the United States. While they're not that big; even the smaller one. Can take off a human finger.

To think I almost bought a hatchling gator snapper, back in the day! The only thing that stopped me, was A. The size of the enclosure needed (and the brute of a filter) and, the beastie would have outlived me, many times over, most like. And no guarantee my kids/grandkids would either want to have him, or spoil the critter as bad as I would!

Sounds like Australia's government is getting a little too liberal for their own good just like the United States. Giving their opinion Into something that they don't know anything about but yet want to make the decisions about it . Pretty soon though screw up everything give them time.

In the northeastern US I was warned as a child about snapping turtles in the local ponds but I dont think these behemoths were what we people were talking about!

I literally travelled to the Daintree River from the US with the express purpose of seeing a crocodile. Why on EARTH would they think removing the crocs would help tourism??

"Anything that goes in there ain't coming out...the turtle's not letting go." I once watched my uncle fight an alligator snapper for a beloved fishing lure. Took him about 15 minutes, but he got his lure back. The turtle wasn't too happy about loosing his "fish" to a human, and he slunk off to the far bank to glare at us for a while.

I always thought australia was all about preserving there natural beautiful landscape and it's native wildlife bit this is making me think there trying to change for the betterment of people were the ones that can adapt to survive most of these animals live in niche habitat that with little change can spell disaster

I can not believe that some fool came up with a plan to remove an apex predator from an ecosystem. Why isn't it a law there that political and community planners must consult a wildlife conservationist before they implement a plan as foolish as this. Anywhere unspoiled nature is still present on our planet must be fiercely defended. That guy that raised awareness of this plan is a hero.

I love how Tim says that the few deadly attacks are "not always" the crocodile's fault. Um when was the last deadly encounter that happened because a croc went into a human's home and killed them? That's almost as good as blaming a shark for attacking a human. I'm pretty sure sharks don't come on land looking for food. Just a thought. Thanks Tim for your amazing work and for shedding light on the plight of these magnificent creatures. You are awesome!!

So a few people (ignorant/self entitled/stupid as the most Fothermuckers ya ever met etc etc) wanna swim? Keep the crocs and let them jump in. Animals are not the problem. Hope they see sense on this matter.

Totally agree with you re croc removal. My husband and I went to cairns and stayed in Daintree. We weren’t there for the swim in the river, we had the pool and also sections in the sea if we wanted to swim. The river is their home and belongs to them.

I've been watching this show and Wildlife Aid for a while now, and I love how folks in Australia and the UK name their pets (and in these cases the rescued wildlife) human names so often. It's hysterical. I get such a kick out of it. XD

My mom had a pet alligator snapping turtle. My brothers brought it home as a small hatchling. He lived under our Ice box. Ice box, not refrigerator as no electricity at the farmhouse. He filled the drip pan when my middle brother Steve was holding me up and teaching me to walk. Steve kept walking me towards it and I would scream as the turtle would snap at my toes. Barely missing them. Mom took after him with a piece of kindling. He did it again and my oldest brother Ken stopped him by taking a piece of kindling and letting the turtle snap it clean in two. Mom then fed the turtle and it never snapped at mom. For years and years that turtle was the stuff of nightmares. We moved to town and the turtle was released back to the pond.

Alligator snapping turtle. Never underestimate the intelligence of a reptile. They've been able to survive a mass extinction, multiple ice ages and humans.
davis51369 Oy oldin
People suck. The human species are the ones that need to stop breeding. The other species don't ruin the earth, we do. The animals that do cause destruction is usually because WE took them somewhere they don't belong. It's so sad how we have destroyed so much land and have caused so many species to be on the endangered list. Breaks my heart
Douglas Griffiths
Douglas Griffiths 29 kun oldin
Agreed. Humans definitely do need to stop breeding. We're the ones screwing everything up, for our benefit, and to hell with other creatures. That's not the way it was supposed to be. We were supposed to be the shepherds and caretakers of the land and creatures, to the benefit of all. Breaks my heart too, and I can say I never contributed to the human overpopulation problem (I never had kids). There's way too much development, and soon all the wild places will be just a memory.

Leonardo is what my German dad used to call my hubby, cause his name is leonard and he thought Leonardo was more fancy lol 😆 So y'all got a fancy alligator snapper ❤ love them !!! The lady who cares for these wild babies is so amazing 👏 So sad a mommy dropped her Joey cause she was handful 😢 Hey I get it, my kids were and are a handful even at age 23 and 19 and yeah sometimes I wished I could just run away from them 🤣 🤣 but I could NEVER do that to my Gremlins. Poor little Joey 😢 Glad she'd in such good hands though 🙌 Jeffery got his own kingdom, empire and harem out there. I love it ❤ 😀 And I love how he keeps popping in sometimes for some cuddles and amazing snacks 😋 Hey who could turn down a good old pasta dish? Not me and not even a tree kangaroo 👍 Great job to everyone on this show 👏 you guys truly love all animals ❤ Sad that humans want to interfere with nature still 😢 Haven't we learned by now how important it is to keep animals in their habitats? And nobody will ever swim in those rivers anyway 🙄 C'mon it's australia, if there is a natural water source you best believe there'll be some crocs in there. Even in Florida alligators end up in ppl's lakes behind their houses. Sometimes even in their pools 😆 At least you can see them in pools! I live in Georgia in the USA and I would never even take a swim in naturals bodies of water. We have water moccasins, alligators , snappers and alligator snappers. 👎 NO THANK YOU !!!!!

@12345 6789 a pug could break a bamboo stick with its teeth. A 8 year old can use it's immense strength to bend it with their hands n snap it. My point was it's not rly impressive that a ALIGATOR SNAPPING turtle that looks like a literal dinosaur that's famous for breaking BONES can break a tiny bamboo stick. :S

My cousins and I found a snapping turtle when we were around 8 years old and the turtle was about 8 inches across. This was along the North Platte in Nebraska. Cousin Dan held the turtle like a big sandwich in front of him and when he bent over to look down on the shell, the turtle latched onto Dan's belly. It took all our gathered parents with pliers and screwdrivers to unlatch the turtle. What a lesson, especially for Danny!

So, the government has spent over a hundred years introducing foreign pests like rabbits into the ecosystem and is now wanting to cull the native crocodile population. That's a bit strange. Also, why would anyone want to swim in that river. They can't guarantee the crocs are all gone or new crocs won't migrate. Also, what about snakes and other critters in there?
Ronda Meier
Ronda Meier Oy oldin
I'd be willing to bet that it's real estate developers putting pressure on that government, they know it gets tourist, that river and the area, so they probably want to build some big river bank hotel, etc, even houses maybe..... I know in Florida some time ago that happened and then people started having probs with the alligators, now they've got more land that's protected and they have to be removed not killed if found near humans... But from South Carolina, to Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas they can be found.... So removal doesn't guarantee anything. If an alligator wants to be somewhere it will go. Period.
