THE Adelaide River may be about to get a new boss croc.
Agro, a 6.1m monster who rules a stretch of the waterway, is expected to be challenged by the croc formerly known as 800kg Nervous Nifty â€” the hero on today’s front page. He lost the “nervous” from his name when he became a boss croc in his own right â€” and when he stopped being scared of his own tail.
The Original Adelaide River Queen Jumping Crocodile Cruises skipper Lex Wilson said it was only a few years ago that the company would struggle to feed Nifty.
“He’d come to the boat to feed and touch the boat with his tail, think it was another croc, and run for his life,” he said. “He was also terrified of logs that looked too much like crocs.”
