Saltwater Crocodile, Kakadu National Park, Australia by Jayden O’Neill

An unlucky barramundi has met its demise at the teeth of this giant Saltwater Crocodile.

Barramundi and Wallabies used to make up the majority of Crocodile Prey in Kakadu National park, and while this barra is pretty big and juicy, these lucky Salties often have something a bit bigger to wrap their teeth.

Unfortunately, the luck of the Crocodile doesn't pass through to the rest of the greater Kakadu ecosystem. Feral, introduced buffalo and pigs have overgrazed and trampled much of the vegetation, which has caused shifts in species composition, and complete degradation of large areas of vegetation.
