The Museum's latest major exhibition, Croc Country, takes visitors on a 200 million year journey exploring how modern crocs evolved and adapted to become one of the most feared killers in the world today.
Croc Country features live crocs and gives visitors plenty to think about when it comes to living with these prehistoric creatures in North Queensland.
The exhibition looks at crocs from all angles including how their bodies function, how they track and catch their prey and how we've integrated crocs into our modern culture.
Croc Country features personal stories from experts including:
- George Craig who worked as a commercial croc hunter in the 1960s
- Robert Reid, an investigative journalist who's researched some of the most well-known fatal croc attacks in North Queensland
- John Lever who owns and runs Queensland's first commercial croc farm, Koorana Crocodile Farm.
A series of Sunday talks will give visitors the chance to delve even deeper into the world of crocs, covering topics such as croc research and management, Australia's croc safari hunting industry and the role of zoos in croc conservation.
Croc Country is proudly supported by the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection and
