ENCOUNTERS WITH THE LARGEST EXISTING REPTILES                                   HOME   |   COPYRIGHT   |   WARNING  |   ABOUT


The descriptions and advice on this website regarding the saltwater crocodile (Crocodylus porosus) are accurate and based on real experience.

This information can be used to improve security when living in or visiting areas that are inhabited by this animal. However, this website is not meant to give sufficient instruction for exploring the habitat of the animal on the remote coastline with a sea kayak.

Topics like the avoidance of territorial conflicts are provided here as short briefings to accurately clarify general connections around the rules of free nature, but the details of such things are much more complex in practice. In areas that are frequently visited or inhabited by people, crocodiles normally would not understand the latter as a new threat, but in the very remote regions this could be different and an unpredictable territorial conflict is far more likely.

The author herewith explicitly warns everybody against entering the remote territories of the saltwater crocodile.
