Salties, as the Aussies say, are the world's largest crocodiles. They can easily split a human in half and can reach up to 17 feet in size. That's more than three times the size of, oh, me.
Salties also like to watch their prey before attacking. Creepy. A nice woman I met at Museums and Art Galleries of the Northern Territory told me that the same croc watched her and her husband for three days during a camping trip. Horrifying.
Sweetheart: Giant crocodile who terrorized Australia's Northern Territory in the 1970s. It was killed by accident, and is now on view at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory.
