THE RYDGES POST
Sweetheart was the name given to a 5.1 metre saltwater crocodile responsible for a series of attacks on boats between 1974 and 1979. Sweetheart attacked outboard motors, dinghies, and fishing boats. Who knows, he/she might have just been flossing. Anyay, in July 1979, Sweetheart was finally caught alive by a team from the Territory Parks and Wildlife Commission, but the poor critter drowned while being transported when it became tangled with a log. The croc's mounted body is now on permanent display at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory.
