Farm pests, Aussie style.

Think you’ve got it tough with badgers, pigeons and rabbits on your farm?

Well spare a thought for my baramundi-farming friend Marty, who has to contend with these:

This ‘little’ fella is a couple of metres long, and was just chillin’ by one of the ponds, sunning itself, when we drove past today. We managed to get about 10m away from it before it slipped into the pond and went under water.

There are about five or six crocs living in the ponds (they hop over the banks from the Moresby River which runs alongside the farm), but Marty says he’s not too worried about them being there as they have such an abundance of fish to eat in the ponds that they leave humans alone.

Still, I wouldn’t fancy the job of holding the nets on the weekly Thursday fishing trip
