Truckies brush with croc 'eyeing them off for a feed'

THREE Northern Territory drivers did a spot of fishing in a Darwin waterway and one told his mate that a large saltwater crocodile was several metres away and stalking them.

He was adamant the reptile was eyeing them off for a feed.

Sounded very convincing considering Darwin creeks and rivers abound with the saurian's.

Another of the anglers suggested the sharp eyed spotter could be a version of Crocodile Dundee.

But an oldtimer who regularly fished the vicinity came along pointed out that it was not a croc.

"It is a big log that can be seen as the tide goes out. But it can look like a croc at certain times," he said.

The two mates have a new name for the would be croc informant. He is now dubbed LOG-A-DILE Dundee.
