Airborne croc encounter prompts warning. 02/02/2006. ABC News Online: "A scientist's encounter with an airborne crocodile has prompted calls for Northern Territory residents to watch for crocs when driving near waterways.
The scientist was driving along a highway in Kakadu National Park when the two metre croc launched itself from a roadside culvert and out in front of the four-wheel drive.
Kakadu's crocodile management officer, Garry Lindner, says it is the latest in a series of reports of drivers being confronted by crocs in Kakadu.
He says drivers should watch for the eyes, which glow red in the car headlights."
