Super Dangerous Crocodile Rescue Mission Try?

The Indonesian authorities announced a reward for anyone who could pull a tire from the neck of a saltwater crocodile after attempts at failure. The search for the right person remained in the rescue operation, which only crocodile expert Steve Irwin could implement.

For several years, local conservation authorities have tried and failed to untangle the 13-foot-long crocodile in the Central Sulawesi capital and with several failed attempts that put the reptiles at greater risk of extinction, the provincial government came forward to save the crocodile by announcing a large, unspecified reward for anyone who could carry out. The mission.

However, the announcement contained a warning from the President that this call is not about hobbyists to hunt reptiles, but it is a call for people who have a background in saving and preserving wildlife life.

“We ask the public not to approach the crocodile or disturb its habitat,” said Hasmoni Hasmar, head of the Natural Resources Conservation Agency in Central Sulawesi.

The saltwater crocodile is a tremendous opportunistic crocodile also known as the estuarine crocodile or the Indian crocodile which is the largest living reptile species and has many regions in it, such as Northern Australia, especially in Southeast Asia, to the eastern coast of India.

Historically, its presence was from the westernmost coast of Africa to the easternmost waters of Japan. Fatal attacks on humans were recorded, although humans sometimes attack it because of the chief value of the saltwater crocodile.

Male saltwater crocodiles can reach a size of 6.7 meters and weigh up to 2,000 kg. Male adult saltwater crocodiles are between 4.3 and 5.2 meters, equivalent to 14 or 17 feet and weighing 400-1,000 kg, which is approximately 880-2,200 A pound and rarely grows larger than that.

The females are much smaller and rarely exceed 3 meters, about 9.8 feet. This crocodile can live in saltwater, but it is usually found in swamps, estuaries, rivers, and lakes.
