to understand this, but the following might be the best: Once the author met some traditional Aboriginal hunters and offered them to try his kayak. They explained that it is not possible for them to enter the water in such a small boat. The reason for this would be that the saltwater crocodiles that in the past years or decades had escaped the hunters when trying to spear them, each of these animals would recognise exactly the hunter who once attacked it, and the crocodile would look for fatal retribution if there was an opportunity. This danger would not last for some months, but for as long as the crocodile lives â€“ which can be more than a hundred years.
To avoid situations that could be felt as provocation by a saltwater crocodile, it is enough to use common sense and to behave respectful in any regard while in the remote territories. According to Aboriginal sources regarding incidents on the remote coastline where a crocodile has surprisingly attacked a person out of a group of people, this is often an act of defending the area when the group has behaved contumeliously, for example by being loud and distressing.
As already declared, it is vital to accept that there is a very strong landlord in Australiaâ€™s remote northern areas - a creature that has not much in common with the humiliated captive crocodiles, presented in TV-shows for example. >
