Diving With... Crocodiles

Till recently," diving with sharks ", was the most exhilarating, adrenaline-filled adventure for many recreational divers and thrill seekers. But now, the bar has been raised a little bit higher...
Crocosaurus Cove park, located in Darwin, Australia — offers adventurous visitors a chance to “swim” with saltwater crocodiles inside a five-inch thick, 10ft-tall perspex box which runs along a monorail track across four crocodile enclosures.
A transparent perspex cage, called the "Cage of Death," allows park visitors to get face to face with 1,750-pound, 18-foot long crocodiles while the the 5.31-inch thick cage is immersed inside the crocs' tank.

Just in case watching a leisurely swimming croc withing a few inches away from your face is still dull for you, and you want more "action", the cage is covered... in chunks of meat to get the beast excited, and draw to the cage when it enters the water.

Remember the scene in Crocodile Dundee movie, when Linda Koslowski's character was almost eaten by a croc ? It was Burt, one of the mighty reptiles at the Crocosaurus Cove park.

If you find yourself in Australia, and consider to try out this adventure, here are a few quick, fun facts:

Saltwater crocodiles are the largest reptiles on the planet and are able to gobble down horses, water buffalo and even sharks. Found in Australia and New Guinea, Indonesia and Borneo, the crocs are even known to add... humans to the menu

Have fun !
