& # 39; A croc of this size, they will not bite you, they will eat you, & # 39; he said to ABC.
Rangers said that the crocodile, given its size, could be used for breeding or display.
It was sent to a croc farm.

Many social media users were quick to share their own stories about the boat ramp.
& # 39; We camped there .. read the signs .. we stayed mostly & # 39; at night! You could hear them splashing in the water! respect their space, & said a person.
& # 39; Do not wash your plates … use a damp sponge and wipes … otherwise you may also be washing your pants when you see one of these baby & # 39; s. & # 39;
Another person wrote: & # 39; I saw this croc when we did the Victoria River Cruise 2 months ago. The biggest croc we've ever seen.
& # 39; He had fed a cow in the last ten days. I would never get near a river in NT. & # 39;
