Crocodile hear the sound of a outboard motor as the same as other crocs invading their space..and will attack. Bill Byson in his excellent book "In a Sunburned Country" relates this and other tales of croc attacks in Australia.

In Terry Pratchett's Discworld there is a reference to the dangers lurking in Australia.

Both the flora and fauna of the continent is extremely dangerous, as Death's Library attests. A book series known as "Dangerous Mammals, Reptiles, Amphibians, Birds, Fish, Jellyfish, Insects, Spiders, Crustaceans, Grasses, Trees, Mosses and Lichens of Terror Incognita" extends at least into "Volume 29c Part Three", while a list of the harmless ones contains only "Some of the sheep." There are few poisonous snakes in XXXX, the explanation for this being that "most of them have been eaten by the spiders".

I hope an alligator attacks you at the exact moment you get a brain aneurysm.

What's next? Bears clawing your thermos? Raccoons lifting your garbage can lid?

Nature is so unnatural to people.

Another near tragedy caused by hideous footwear. When will people learn?

WTF are you talking about subby?
He never thought it was an alligator because (despite the name of the river) we don't have alligators in Australia (stupid pansy ass little Crocodylians wouldn't last a minute in that river).
