Life Of Others (Post#16) : Lake Argyle – The Freshie
Australian are known to make informal words and used to shorten long word or group of words. The group of words that they were able to made a colloquial word is “Freshwater crocodiles” which they called it as “Freshie”. During the cruising activity in Lake Argyle, we had a chance to see and enjoy from the boat the sightings of the “Freshie”. This type of crocodiles are said to be safe for the people. The advised is just avoid them as they may bite because of self-defense. These photos are part of Day 2 (Judbarra/Lake Argyle) of 9 Days Darwin to Broome Overland Adventure Tour October 2016.
Freshwater crocodile (Crocodylus johnsoni or Crocodylus johnstoni), also known as the Australian freshwater crocodile, Johnstone’s crocodile or colloquially as freshie, is a species of crocodile endemic to the northern regions of Australia
