How to stuff a giant croc

“Dad brought home a huge lump of the tail and we tried it and it was really tough … just like chewing on white rubber”

Meet Sweetheart, the Territory’s most infamous crocodile and find out how he ended up on the dinner table of a young taxidermist-to-be. Learn about the lengths his father went to to preserve the legendary giant reptile, and travel to a Top End billabong to learn about crocodile conservation.


In this episode hear from MAGNT’s Curator of Territory History Jared Archibald, crocodile specialist Adam Britton, and Northern Territory Outback Wrangler Matt Wright.
