The accidental disturbing of a saltwater crocodileâ€™s favourite hunting ground at the wrong time, would be one of the possible reasons for the animal to behave aggressively toward an intruder on the remote coast.
Most of the crocodiles potential prey lives under the surface and therefore it is not easy to directly detect such a location that might be particular problematic.
General knowledge on the underwater eco-system is an important basis for the identification of signs that reveal potential favourite hunting grounds.
One example is places close to the waters edge where the mullets are concentrating during the night, often along rocks. As they are swimming close to the surface, these fish are easy to detect.
Quite likely the local crocodile uses such places to hunt this massive fish at least from time to time.
If one recognises to have put the camp in the direct proximity of a very populated mullet-gathering point, it would be better to leave the place. >
