Juergen is the biggest croc we have ever caught in the Wenlock River! We initially captured him in 2012, then again (twice!) in 2013 and now in 2014. Juergen was named by a visiting film crew from Germany.
Australia Zoo, in partnership with The University of Queensland and Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors, now manage the longest continuous study of crocodiles in the world. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, this vital croc research continues, helping us to find out more about this incredible, threatened species and how best to manage and work with communities living alongside them.
