Crocodiles are common in and around the rivers, tanks, estuaries and marshes. Care must always be taken in these area as they can move very fast on land and in the water to capture their prey. Sadly, every year there are fatalities and serious injury to both unwary humans and livestock, swimming or bathing in crocodile infested areas. On occasion after heavy rain, they may be washed into the sea near river estuaries.
