Queensland Crocodile farm is famous for their Gigantic crocodiles which included a 17-foot-long crocodile. This is the biggest Crocodile which farm has seen in 30 years, but on last Thursday, it was seen dead near the Fitzroy river. A bullet was fired into the crocodiles head. During the inspection it turned out that the bullet came from fairly a large-caliber rifle and the owner of the crocodile farm, John Leaver said “I would say that someone felt very threatened.”
Still, It’s very tragic to see such a gigantic animal be killed. But when it comes to a saltwater Queensland crocodile, Nobody can be blamed for not taking any chances. The problem is what comes next when such a Crocodile dies.
When the big crocodile dies, other young males try to occupy the top position. Having one croc which patrols the area, like an alpha, has a very calming effect on the entire crocodiles accros the region. Though more researchers are trying to determine exactly how crocodile societies react to losing their alpha. Even relocating a crocodile from one place to another can upset the region, and invader crocs from other communities could step in, trying to take over.
A crocodile civil war sounds pretty brutal. We can just hope that the toll of losing their Alpha member doesn’t threaten the group, or more will have to die as a consequence. Anyhow The life of a reptile is very rough. They sink low to the grounds, inches from the mud their entire lives, eating flesh and hissing away rivals. Crocodiles occupy a world so different from ours that their first-person perspective may resemble an alien planet.
Sadly, the body of the Queensland Crocodile was left where it was shot for a few days before someone noticed. Hunting saltwater crocodiles is illegal, so the death of the animal continues to be investigated.
