Huge Saltwater Jumping Crocodile in Adelaide River, Darwin, North Territory, Australia
In the murky waters of the Adelaide River, lives the most dangerous reptile in Northern Australia which is the huge saltwater jumping crocodiles. Perched high above the dangers of the crocodiles is a feast of birdlife - white belly sea eagles, magpie, geese, brolgas, spritely dollar birds and hawks (known as kites in the NT). Kingfishers and corellas gather in flocks of hundreds on the marshy floodplains beside the river. Wild pigs and buffalo are often sighted darting in and out of the tall grasses along the river banks.
