Croc takes dip in family spa

`A 1.5m crocodile was found in a Northern Territory family’s backyard spa just hours after a woman had used it.

Rangers were called to a rural property at Bees Creek, about 30km south of Darwin, to remove the salt water crocodile that had sneaked into the spa during the night.

Long-term Territory croc catcher Tom Nichols said the woman, aged in her late 50s, was very lucky she didn’t run into the reptile.

“Had she have jumped into the spa without seeing the croc it could have been very nasty,” Mr Nichols said.’
