From wikipedia...

Among Normanton's most notable features is a statue of an 8.64-metre (28.3 ft) long saltwater crocodile named Krys, the largest ever taken, which was shot by Krystina Pawlowska in July 1957 in the Norman River. "The Big Barramundi", which is 6 metres (20 ft) long, is also located in the town.

I've stood next to this statue on my way to a fishing holiday in Karumba... it's one big croc!
I was also fortunate to see Krys the Croc while we were in Normanton pig hunting and fishing.
They have a reproduction of Krys in the main street of town.

Matt Wright the crocodile hunter in the Norther Territory with his latest catch.
He relocates problem croc’s. Matt said the crocodile, affectionately dubbed Rex by his fans, was 5.1metres (16.7 feet) long despite missing a huge chunk of its tail.
“Just another day in Australia...catching the local dinosaur who’s been eating the cattle and moving him on to somewhere else.”

The lead horse is called
Alligator Blood
See I was not joking
We’re Australians -we are different

@Dr Ray
Only a queenslander would think like that.
Reminds me of the time when the Japanese won the Melbourne cup.
They asked the horse how come they run so fast and who was the trainer.
The horse replied
If you were on the menu you would learn to run fast as well.

I do not know where this video was posted, but I would very much like to see it.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
