    Lightbulb Ray Mears' Close Encounters: Saltwater Crocodile

    First episode about to start on (17th July) ITV at 9pm

    Season 1 Episode 1 of 2
    In the first of two studies of Australian animals, the survival expert focuses on the saltwater crocodile. In the sparsely populated Northern Territory, numbers of the predators are increasing and they have been known to make their way into the gardens of people in Darwin. Ray meets croc-catching rangers, scientists and surgeons who patch up the reptiles' injured victims as he asks whether it is possible for humans to live alongside this fearsome creature.

    Watching this now on the itv player.

    When I view Sir Rays programs that are other than bushcraft or are made by ITV, I am usually a little dissapointed. This one is not too bad at all and I think I will carry on watching the rest.

    With the size of some of them salties, forum leather workers wouldn't need any more than one skin in a lifetime. As far as paying AU$ 90,000 for a non washable tshirt, I think I will pass !!.

    Watched it last night, it was interesting and makes you think about living anywhere near a "salty"

    This is one I met in North Queensland two years ago, they are big nasty ba-----s. I have a bit of one of his mates holding up my trousers. Most locals(including my mate from Brisbane)
    would like to see open season declared on them.
