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.
