Police received a call that a woman was taken by a crocodile near Nightcliff Pool about 9.43am. Water police did a complete sweep of the foreshore while general duties police patrolled on foot. After interviewing several people police concluded no one was taken by a crocodile. Despite that, police are not treating the call from the woman as a prank. Closer to the Darwin CBD fishos reported an estimated two-metre saltie hanging around Fishermans Wharf. The little croc did a few laps and soaked up the attention from curious onlookers before disappearing as quickly as it arrived. Nearby at Rapid Creek, a 1m crocodile is still eluding Parks and Wildlife rangers. Wildlife ranger Tommy Nichols said the crocodile trap was being checked everyday. Mr Nichols said they had received several calls from the public about a one-metre saltie hanging around the footbridge at the mouth of Rapid Creek. He is still eluding us, Mr Nichols said.
