Jumping crocodiles

Jumping crocodile Jumping Crocodiles of Australia are not freshwater, but saltwater crocodiles. Thirty years ago, the crocodile was heading to extinction. Today, there are more than 80,000 saltwater crocodiles along the tidal rivers of northern Australia. The crocodile is part of the reptile family. Its blood is cold and, as many reptiles such as snakes, it basks in the sun during the "cold" season, which runs from June to early August. In contrast, during the hot season, crocodiles bury themselves in the mud under the trees in order to be protected from heat. Saltwater crocodiles developed an extraordinary ability to jump in order to catch prey, i.e. birds resting on trees above the water line.
Katherine

Katherine The town of Katherine, about 200 miles south of Darwin, draws its prosperity from the surrounding cattle stations, an abattoir and, more recently, from tourism. About 20 miles from town is the Katherine Gorge where the river flows, clean and swift, between towering canyon walls. Jedda Rock takes its name from the Charles Chauvel movie "Jedda", which was filmed in the area.
