Staff Get Snappy At Croc College

Melbourne Aquarium staff get prepped for Pinjarra's arrival!

 

In preparation for Pinjarra’s exciting arrival this September, last week four brave staff members went on a daring adventure to ‘Croc College’ in Queensland, where they learnt all the finer details involved in caring for one of the largest and most feared predators.

 

Hosted by none other than croc expert John Lever, the Melbourne Aquarium team wrapped their jaws around an intensive crash-course encompassing croc awareness, handling techniques, safety and conservation.

 

Starting with some deceptively strong smaller crocodiles, the team worked their way up those of Pinjarra’s immense size, whose powerful frame measures in at around 5m in length and approximately 750kg in weight.

 

One of the largest of its kind on display anywhere in the world, the jaw-dropping reptile will be homed in a state-the-art, purpose built Croc Lair exhibit set to officially open to the public on 21 September – just in time for the school holidays. 

 

3 WEEKS TO GO ‘TIL RELAUNCH!

From 21 September, Melbourne Aquarium will fly the world-famous SEA LIFE flag when it officially opens its doors as SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium, home to hundreds of new species in 12 new amazing zones of discovery.
