        Daintree river, nearer to the coast where it's more like an estuary. I'm pretty sure the crocs are protected there these days, and I'm not sure a fence would stop them anyway. If not there anyway, guys in more outback areas definitely lose a few. Theres stations out there in the state that are 1.5 million hectares. Can't fence everything especially if it's the only thing around to drink from.

      Salties take cattle all the time. Farmers pay croc catchers to catch and relocate them.
      A 3m-4m saltie turned up on North Stradbrok Island today, hundreds of miles further south than where they're supposed to be, so that's interesting,

        >that snake died trying to eat it,
        The alligator died too. Pythons kill thousands of alligators in Florida, and hundreds of thousands of other native animals.
        Between 2017 and 2020 the Florida state government paid professional contractors to capture more than 10,000 invasive pythons from the wild, and that barely made a dent in the problem. There are python-catching competititions everywhere in the southern part of Florida, and pythons keep moving further north every year.
        And yes, it's fricking idiot American pet owners. Why else are there "breeding facilities" for dangerous invasive reptiles?
        Georgia and Alabama have joined Florida in banning the breeding of sale of Burmese pythons because they know that they're next.

          Do those competitions involve prize money? Because I guarantee someone is breeding them solely to “capture” them for competitions. The same thing happened in India, and their snake population exploded even more because of it.

            Indians were poor as shit then though. Surely whatever the prize money is isn't worth the time and resources to breed for a Floridian.

      in my experience just don't get within a few feet of them and they're chill. They're more likely to frick off than anything else. Pets and small kids are at risk though. Their prey distinction for stuff on the shore is very height based - crawl around on your knees next to the water's edge and you might see one moving your way.
      Fishing waters with them in is fun, you need to reel in fast because they learn that hooked fish are easy targets and they'll steal your bass.

            In fact, the fact most fauna that can frick you up here is mammals is pretty alarming, as they will be less likely to freeze up or back down depending on species and they will be way more energetic and able to analyze a solution for hurting you or defending themselves than cold blooded gators.

            this
            Reptiles in North America aren't scary, most just flee and none (maybe crocodiles?) see humans as potential prey. Wouldn't be surprised if the most dangerous to someone minding their own business are the invasive green iguanas, the males get territorial. All mammals are smart enough to get it in their heads to do murder for non-survival reasons, and then there are the large predators. Which are honestly less of a potential threat than pissed off ungulates.

            >1000 deaths per death

            Salties and Niles combined are >95% of croc fatalities, which is WELL over 1000 and prob closer to 3000. Hippos and elephants don't hunt people. Crocs do.

            Niles and Salties are one of the few animals on earth that is regularly large and fearsome and subtle/cunning enough to prey upon human beings, and actively ENJOY doing so. A tiger has to be kinda a messed up individual tiger to become a real maneater, they are just weird/hurt ones most of the time (there are some psycho tigers and lions though who seem to love hunting humans, and leopards love to prey on primates. cats love to kill primates). Gators don't really attack people often and they don't seem to like eating people. They'll bite you or something but they don't actively want to hunt you in most cases. Niles and Salties are the real deal.

              Gators tend to lean more into smaller prey than themselves meaning people walking their dogs near the water or smaller children tend to be the main threats to humans with them (pets and kids) paired with very few ever really make it to huge sizes that would see adult humans as a reliable zoo's. If I remember right after about 5 to 6 foot gators growth slows down compared to some crocs.

              Add in some states have gator hunting seasons to help keep their numbers in check and some states wont trap and transport gators after a certain size.
              Truly big gators are all in remote waterways, old and learned to avoid people mostly and zoos where they're fed.

              more people die to hippos or elephants, you have to combine all crocodile species to get to 1000 deaths per death and even then thats mostly carried by salties and nile crocs

                Salties and Niles combined are >95% of croc fatalities, which is WELL over 1000 and prob closer to 3000. Hippos and elephants don't hunt people. Crocs do.

                elephant herds attack villages occasionally, its usually males and its basically teenage or incel rage, elephants are actual pest in countries that have them, because the only way you elephant proof your farm is to have a tall concrete wall, so if the elephant does something you dont want youre kinda fricked
                and hippos are butthole in general, and unlike a croc, theyll leave the water to kill you

                Hippos and elephants aggro because they're territorial and you happen to be in their path. Saltwater and Nile crocodiles seek out people to stalk, kill, and then consume. They are the only large predators that do this habitually. This is why they are responsible for far more deaths than either.

          Ive been swimming around them since I was like 11
          Only one time did I feel threatened was when a big one claimed my favored spot to swim in during their breeding season.
          Otherwise just avoid swimming between dusk and dawn to be safe

        This. And the American crocodile is a relic from the time where Africa and the Americas were more closer apart.

      I remember reading once that saltwater crocs and polar bears are the only two species of their respective families that still actively see humans as a potential prey because they haven't lived along human society long enough to learn to avoid people.

        You should read up on the British building railroads in Africa in the 19th century.
        The African workers (who were basically slaves) knew that lions, leopards and hyenas would kill them constantly, so they spent half their time building forts to hide in at night.
        So then the British imported thousands of workers/slaves from India and Ceylon (modern-day India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka). Hundreds of those poor c**ts were quickly killed and eaten by lions, leopards and hyenas.
        Even today, dozens of Indians in India are killed by leopards and tigers every year. There's one schoolteacher in the Himalayas who became a full-time leopard hunter because leopards killed half the kids in his class.
        Even fricking Americans still get killed by mountain lions every year.
        If you really don't think that a predator big or smart enough to kill you will actually kill you, just go out in the bush and say "Hi!"

          Oh, I misread your post. But still no. A study in 2020 found that Nile crocodiles killed 48 people in Africa just in 2019. That would have been just the tip of the iceberg, just for Nile crocodiles.

          That's amazing

          Also I didn't mean salties and polar bears would be the only animals that would kill and eat you given the chance, just that I recall reading they would actively hunt people on any given opportunity instead of it being territorial/isolated kills. But I see your point. Honestly I forgot about nile crocs

              Alligators are one of the biggest success stories and bounced back fast enough and well enough that they only spent 20 years Near Extinct/Extinct to Endangered in most of its range to fully recovered.

                It depends entirely on size, and even then the crocs are way more willing to fight larger animals.

                alligators bully american crocs in the terrain where they overlap, and american crocs are way bigger on average than a freshie.
                they're also bulkier and heavier than a crocodile of the same length.

      the american crocodile can grow up to 20ft too, but it's rare for it to happen. it's mostly based off unconfirmed reports and skull lengths.
      american, nile, and saltwater crocs seem to be the biggest, but the mugger looks the coolest. american croc looks cool too though.

      In fact, the fact most fauna that can frick you up here is mammals is pretty alarming, as they will be less likely to freeze up or back down depending on species and they will be way more energetic and able to analyze a solution for hurting you or defending themselves than cold blooded gators.
