Nude sun bathers bolt from Aussie beach to avoid crocodile

A crocodile is not a creature you are likely to enjoy an encounter with at any time but having one come lunging out of the water when you're nude sunbathing is particularity unsettling. In Broome, Australia, a recent croc warning sent nudists scrambling.

It happened Monday on Cable Beach in Broome, a tourist town in Western Australia some 1400 miles north of Perth. A crocodile about 4 metres long was spotted by life guards and by at least one swimmer. The alert went out and the clothes, and shoes, went on as the naked beat a hasty retreat.

...

Australia's saltwater crocodiles are dangerous to humans and in recent years attacks have been more common. A man was killed by a crocodile as he swam in the Northern Territories last August and last November both a male and female child were killed in separate incidents, also in the Northern Territories.

I guess the croc likes his entrees without any dressing.

Cotton is tough on the Croc’s digestive system. I hear it gives them gas.

There’s a Gary Larsen cartoon about this. Two crocs are leaning back after digesting a swimmer, and one sez to the other... “That was incredible. Just pink soft meat... delicious...”

Nude sun bathers bolt bounded from Aussie beach to avoid crocodile.

I imagine just a little bit of wigglin' and jigglin' was going on.

All beaches in Oz are topless .. lots of nude beaches. Aussies are not hung up on nudity like some other countries (USA comes to mind).

Four meters long, and that's got to be a baby in Australia.

Nude beach or not, I'd probably jump out of my clothes just skeedaddling out of there if I saw a croc coming at me on the beach.

We're talking nudists here. In my experience the people I want to have remove their clothes won't, and the people that will, shouldn't.

Agreed - that crock is nekkid. And that pointy nose is also troubling. Do they have Snapping Crocks?

When I moved to Florida, I was warned to be alert for gators and take extra precautions to avoid an encounter.

They advise hikers to wear little bells on their clothes so they make noise when out hiking. The bell noise allows gators to hear you coming from a distance and not be startled by a hiker accidentally sneaking up on them. This might cause a gator to charge.

Visitors should also carry a pepper spray can just in case a gator is encountered. Spraying the pepper into the air will irritate the gator’s sensitive nose and it will run away.

We were also told to keep an eye out for fresh gator scat, so you have an idea if gators are in the area. When I asked how to identify Gator droppings, he said they tend to contain small bells and smell of pepper.

In April 2010 I went into the ‘Glades to fish for bass. We were in a bass boat, about 2-3 feet out of the water. A gator followed us for miles and I caught lots of bass and threw them back in. I also caught lots of bowfin (trash fish) and threw them to the gators who followed us for miles. As I was fishing in the back of the boat, a gator was trying to crawl into the boat. I told the guide, “I really like nature and shit like that, but this is getting kinda scary.” He was fishing and said “Jes’ kick him in the F’ng head. (In my best down South accent)”. I looked at the gator and told the guide “I spent 1600 bucks on this, YOOU come back here and YOU Kick him in the F’ng head.’ He whacked him with the net.

Good afternoon.

I grew up (3-9 years of age) in Clewiston. I've had everything from alligators to moccasins try to get in the boat. Moral of story, always carry a .357, you never know when you will need it. [The bear, and otter were interesting stories]

5.56mm

It may be nekkid, but it looks like a caiman not a croc.
