March 5, 2008: Sic 'em Salty

Hey Doron, get a picture of me teasing this ol' croc.


Oy Vey!


classicman found this item in the Telegraph.

Quote:
A backpacker in Australia got the fright of his life when a massive crocodile he was "teasing" suddenly exploded from the water and nearly sank its teeth into him.

The 16 foot-long saltwater crocodile came within an arm’s length of inflicting serious damage to the tourist, if not killing him. Novon Mashiah, 27, an Israeli backpacker, spotted the big crocodile during a fishing trip in the Northern Territory.

Determined to have a picture taken of himself with the crocodile, he posed while leaning out of the back of his fishing boat, pointing towards the predator.

"I began playing with it for a photo,'' Mr Mashiah said. "I was pointing at it when it suddenly jumped up at me - I didn't realise that crocs were so aggressive.''

The "saltie" – which experts believe probably approached the boat in search of a free feed of fish – propelled itself out of the water with terrifying speed. After narrowly missing its prey, it smashed into the side of the small metal boat before plunging back into the water.

"I was shocked - the animal clearly wanted to kill me,'' Mr Mashiah, from Tel Aviv, told the Northern Territory News.
Salties love tourists.... yum yum.

How rude. The croc clearly just wanted a kiss, having noticed its admirer.

I don't know why that guy is so afraid of a dozen pair of shoes.



Aliantha  Thursday Mar 6 01:05 AM

Crocs can propel themselves almost entirely out of the water. In fact, they can get just about their whole body length verticle out of the water if they're motivated enough.

I'd say that fella got off very lightly under the circumstances.

I am glad to live in Austria NOT in Australia ... at least what the beasts (crocs, snakes, spiders, jellyfish,...) are concerned.
Kangaroo und emu are funny - but not tasty.

although I could do with some of the Australian beaches ... beautiful

"hey saltie, pull my finger! c'mon, pull my finger and see what ha-HAA-AHHHHH!"



Trilby  Thursday Mar 6 08:47 AM

I have an unnatural fear of crocs and 'gators. I think one ate me up in another life. ewwwwww they give me the shivers. i hate water animals.



'cept dolphins and nice whales; not those black and white kind who kill for sport. Oh, and I like seals, too. And penguins. but that's IT.

Emu and Kangaroo is good eatin' very low in fat, high in protein, much healthier than beef etc.

Low in fat means a bit more care in the cooking so they don't dry out.

Never had any, don't know what they taste like...


Trilby  Thursday Mar 6 08:50 AM

I have an unnatural fear of crocs and 'gators. I must have been eaten by one in a previous life.

I hate all water dewllers--except dolphins, nice whales (not those Killer things) seals, penguins and the Lady of the Lake. All the rest can piss off. Esp. the ones with tentacles and sharp, viscious teeth that want to bite me.

Probably fairly safe in Ohio then, though there is lakeshore,
but nothing could live in it,
except mutants

ever thought of New Mexico, I hear they're short of water,
But not mutants

Why do all near disasters seem to start with, "Hey, check this out"? Doesn't qualify him for a Darwin, since there's no carnage, but gotta at least give the guy a B for effort.

Meanwhile, saltie's thinking 'daim, missed again'.

There is a significant difference between Gators and Crocs. There is only one place in the US that has crocs and it is on the very tip of lower FL. The American Gator is quite docile unless you get near a nesting female. My kids water ski past them on our local river. People do get killed by them but they are the ones that are usually the ones in ponds that are near people who feed them, which you should not do. They will eat a small child or pet if they are not being tended to near gators, that would be dangerous. We eat gator tail every year and it is pretty good.

If this happened in USA, it would've began with "Hey y'all, watch this!"

Also, don't be down on the croc, he just wanted a kosher meal.

Not everyone's so fond of the Lady of the Lake

You forgot the first line of that, "here hold my beer."
