Crocodiles Wander Around Australia After Flood

The receding floods that hit Queensland does not mean the problem is over because there are other dangers lurking, the crocodiles.

MELBOURNE, NNC - The receding floods that hit Queensland does not mean the problem is over because there are other dangers lurking, such as the crocodiles.

Photographs of the animals entering the town of Ingham, located in the northeastern part of the state, circulated in social media after four days of heavy rains that overflowed rivers, covering the meadows and splitting the city.

Toby Millyard, a crocodile researcher from the Australian Zoo in Queensland, said the reptiles are known to use floods to roam for food.

"Some of the crocodiles do like floods and use the current to roam, they are intelligent animals," Millyard said.

"But they will soon move away from humans, as long as you are not in the water or standing by the river, there will be no problem," he said as quoted by Antara.
