CRIKEY! Check out Big Dunc on the #CrocTrip2016 Our highly experienced @AustraliaZoo Croc Team uses the very same capture techniques that Dad developed so many years ago. Our team leader, Toby Millyard was trained by Dad himself and continues to help us carry on in his footsteps. We truly have the most elite team when it comes to catching crocs and we all share the passion of protecting crocodiles as well as educating others. These techniques have allowed us to safely capture crocs such as Big Dunc. Big Dunc is a whopping 15 feet 1.5 inches of sheer power. He is currently the largest crocodile we are tracking in the Wenlock River. This is the third time Big Dunc has decided to stop by for a free meal and to say g’day to our team. Somehow he manages to seem bigger and bigger with each visit. Big Dunc is just one of the 146 (and counting) crocodiles we are currently tracking throughout the Wenlock River.
