While Perth beachgoers were enthralled with a 2000kg sub-adult southern elephant seal which had “hauled out’’ on a city beach, Broome locals and visitors were captivated by the 4m croc which took to Cable Beach’s gentle swell.
The croc hung around for most of Saturday but had moved on by Sunday.
Broome woman Sharon Scoble, who took these amazing photographs, said: “He was a big boy — his head was huge.’’
“It was absolutely awesome,” Ms Scoble, a finance officer for the Kimberley Land Council, said.
“But it wouldn’t have been so awesome if I was swimming and noticed it.”
“But obviously I wasn’t in a position where it was going to harm me.
