We were pleased to name this croc after our awesome camp chef, Lou. Males such as this one are an important part of our study, particularly as he was caught within the territory of boss croc, Drew. We hope to use his tracking data to learn more about the social interactions of male crocodiles within the river system.

This research is made possible each year with the help of Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors, The University of Queensland and our generous sponsors. This vital program is the longest continuous study of crocodiles in the world and helps us to live alongside them and help them, as a vulnerable Australian species.

We invite you to be part of our annual crocodile research trip by joining us, donating or sponsoring your very own gorgeous crocodile!
