how not to get eaten by crocodiles

Well,a few years ago,myself and a couple of friends decided wed go 4 wheel driving to cooktown,queensland.We took 2 4 wheelers,myself and my ex in one,and our 2 mates in the other.Everything was going ok,until e hit Cairns.We stopped at the crocodile park there,i believe at the time the owner was steve irwins dad.There were many crocs,huge ones,baby ones.there was a sign on one of the fences that housed this HUGE croc,saying "please do not dangle handbags over fence''It seems that the old croc takes a liking to your bag,and pulls it,and you dont want to be on the other end.One of our mates got a bit smart,and pushed on the fence that housed the baby crocs,with his foot.Unfortunately.he was wearing thongs,the ''tiny''croc grabbed hold of one of his toes,and bit it off.A trip to the hospital was in order.then,as we neared cooktown,we had to cross a river,and we were ok,but they got stuck.the water came well above the doors.Floating down river you could see their clothes,money,excetera,and their cb was ruined.I walked out half way,but turned back,only to see a sign that said'EQUESTRIAN CROCODILES>>BEWARE>>.We made it to cooktown,only to be told a guy had been taken at that very same spot the week before,,.The guys money dried out,but their cb was ruined.But cooktown,besides all the dramas was worth the wait,and the daintree was spectacular.But beware,,crocs look like bits of wood drifting in the water
