[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Two types of crocodiles inhabit Kakadu - estuarine (saltwater) crocodiles and freshwater crocodiles:

Estuarine crocodiles (Crocodylus porosus) live in fresh, estuarine and saltwater environments, such as floodplains, billabongs, rivers and coastal waters. They are aggressive and dangerous and have attacked and killed people in Kakadu.

This specimen was found on the banks of Yellow River, thankfuly while I was in the safety of a boat.
