Crocosaurus Cove & The Cage of Death

 
 
 
 

This  theme park in Australia  hopes to lure tourists into a "Cage of Death" for a close encounter with a 5.5m crocodile. Just 4cm of acrylic will separate brave punters from the jaws of Choppa - a feisty saltwater croc. Saltwater crocodiles are the world's largest reptile and can grow up to 7 metres. They have become increasingly common in Australia's tropical north since hunting, which almost extinguished the species, was banned in 1971.

Top End tourists will climb into a clear box before being lowered into Choppa's lair.They'll then spend 15 minutes inside the 2.8m high cage and watch Choppa, who lost both front feet while fighting other crocodiles, trying to take a bite out of them. People who climbed into the Cage of Death said it was a scary experience. They say that the power can only be felt when the croc hit the cage. At this time… You would not have a chance (without the cage)!

I just watched National Geog d other day on how this guy did some kind of "whistling"(more like bird sound) to lure the crocodile that they want to capture ~ fascinating to see.

but even with the cage, or being paid to go in there, I wont go to that cage..hehehe..
