In the first of two studies of Australian animals, the survival expert focuses on the saltwater crocodile. In the sparsely populated Northern Territory, numbers of the predators are increasing and they have been known to make their way into the gardens of people in Darwin. Ray meets croc-catching rangers, scientists and surgeons who patch up the reptiles' injured victims as he asks whether it is possible for humans to live alongside this fearsome creature.
