Big Crocodile – level 2
Wildlife rangers caught a huge crocodile at a tourist area in Australia´s Northern Territory.
The animal was 14 feet long and it weighed 770 pounds. Officials said that it was the biggest crocodile that wildlife rangers caught in the area in many years.
Crocodiles are protected in the area, and it is not legal to kill them. However, they are very dangerous, and sometimes they get too close to inhabited areas. Wildlife rangers must catch them and take them to crocodile farms.
The saltwater crocodile is the largest crocodile and the largest reptile in the world. Adults can measure 23 feet and weigh 2,200 pounds. They usually live in salt waters near the coast.
Difficult words: wildlife ranger (a person who takes care of and protects a national park), inhabited (a place where people or animals live), reptile (a type of animals such as lizards, turtles, and crocodiles).
