Can you spot the crocodile? Family enjoying river never saw it

An unsuspecting family of tourists was enjoying a popular river in Australia when a Queenslander showed up and warned them of a hidden crocodile resting in dirty water right in front of them.

Flip-flops can be seen on the sandy shoreline on the right, and the corner of a gazebo is in the water on the left, “setup for swimming,” one commenter pointed out.

The family enjoying this section of the Wenlock River in Cape York never saw the crocodile.

Jeremaine Agale posted a photo of the camouflaged crocodile and posted it on the “To The Cape York And Back Information” Facebook page and warned, “I know we live in crocodile country, but always be vigilant.”

“When will people learn,” one commenter wrote under the image. “Love how non-locals think that they know better than locals; that place is full of crocodiles. Very lucky that [the family is] alive too tell the story. The Wenlock is full of crocodiles and a lot bigger than that one in the picture. Never swim in dirty, unclean water, always make sure the water is crystal clear so you can see the bottom but even still you’re not safe because that’s their territory.”

Another wrote, “I was told in Darwin that for every 1 that you see there is another 7.”

“Thanks for posting, a reminder to us all,” wrote another.

“According to the Queensland Department of Environment and Science, there have been 12 deaths in the state caused by crocs from 1975 to 2021 and 41 non-fatal attacks,” Yahoo! News Australia stated. “Two of those were in the Cape York Peninsula.”
