Sup Travellers?! In news that could make you never want to swim in a beach ever again: a 13 foot crocodile was spotted at Broome’s Cable Beach, in Western Australia over the weekend. The crocodile just looked like it was having some fun in the sun but that one crocodile cleared out the entire beach all by himself. Broome's Cable Beach is a major tourist hotspot in Australia attracting thousands of people to the 22km stretch every year.

However, the beach was closed on Saturday after the crocodile was seen lazing around in the knee-deep water for the entire day, according to Perth Now News. Broome woman Sharon Scoble said she was amazed by how big the reptile was. "He was a big boy - his head was huge," she said. "It would be all over red rover if he got hold of you."

The crocodile did not show signs of aggression, but Ms Scoble said it was looking at people on the beach. But by Sunday the crocodile had moved on. 

Parks and Wildlife senior operation officer Dave Woods said that the crocodile was 3.5 meters to 4 meters long. Officials are now searching for the animal in order to move it to the Malcolm Douglas Wilderness Park, 16km east of Broome.

There is big debate going on about whether or not the Australian government should change the laws protecting crocodiles in the country. I shared my 2 cents on the debate back in January when the 12 year old boy was snatched by a croc at Australia's Kakadu National Park. I'm not sure if anything has been done since then but I still hold that the crocodiles should be killed culled. But that's just me. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
