Harry

Named after Inspector “Dirty” Harry Callahan who famously coined the phrase, “Go ahead, make my day” Harry will quite happily hold you at ransom just to get his lunch!
Famous in the NT and around the world since successfully selecting the results of various events (Paul the Octopus Style) including the Federal Election, AFL and World Cup Grand Finals, Harry loves the limelight and is very much the performer.

Houdini & Bess (William & Kate)

Age
Houdini 40+ | Bess 30+
To mark the Royal Wedding in 2011, Crocosaurus Cove has given the honorary names of William & Kate to their loved up couple, Houdini & Bess.
A successful escape artist, Houdini gained his name for his ability to climb into a trap and steal the bait before escaping from the enclosures at the Darwin Crocodile Farm.
However, since being introduced to the very petite Bess in 1991, Houdini has stayed put.
They are now a successful breeding couple, producing a clutch of eggs in November 2011.

Chopper

Weight

Age
80+
Voted the most popular crocodile at Crocosaurus Cove, you can’t help but love this rough and battle scarred monster crocodile! The 2nd largest crocodile at the attraction (by a few centimetres – but who’s counting!) Chopper was named after the infamous Australian Criminal, Chopper Reid for his missing limbs and fierce attitude.
Judging by these battle scars, Chopper has had a pretty hard life out in the wild, losing his two front feet in fights with younger crocs when he lived downstream of La Belle Station west of Darwin.

Denzel

Length

Weight
670kg
Age
60+
He’s big & he’s ugly and all of the other crocs stay out of his way. Denzel is one mean mother – so mean in fact, that he had to be removed from the breeding program and be put into solitary confinement whilst at the Darwin Crocodile Farm.
Denzel was also accused of being responsible for many infertile nests at the Darwin Crocodile Farm, so he has taken up residence at Crocosaurus Cove instead!

Burt

Length

Weight
700kg
Age
80+
Watch out ladies! Burt may be a famous movie star, however he has a killer reputation with women. Burt is our oldest and famous resident. He has starred alongside Paul Hogan and Linda Kozlowski in the original Crocodile Dundee movie as well as providing the basis for the digital crocodile in the film, Rogue. Burt has been in captivity for over 30 years and has starred in a host of other documentaries and awareness programs throughout that time.
Burt is now a confirmed bachelor with one hell of a grumpy attitude!

Wendell

Length
5.5m
Weight
800kg
Wendell was the winning entry in our NT News, Name the Croc Competition. Darcey Brick of Humpty Doo chose the name Wendell, after Dual International Rugby star Wendell Sailor, who said the name was fitting as the croc was big, bad, full of attitude and loved the spotlight! In recent years, Wendell has been quite aggressive and not co-operating with the ladies at the Darwin Crocodile Farm, so he has been brought to Crocosaurus Cove to bask in the spotlight of an adoring public!
