Croc's whiter shade of pale has boaties looking twice

A Territory couple had a “one in a million” fishing trip on the weekend, when they caught a glimpse of a rare albino saltwater crocodile.

Belinda Trewartha and her fiance Peter Bellis were fishing with friends at a Top End river when they saw a shadow in the water and a head “popping up near the boat”.

“We thought it was a fish, but then realised it was a crocodile head – and it was all white,” the 29-year-old told the Northern Territory News.

“My fiance has been fishing on the river his whole life, we come here at least 20 times a year, but we’ve never seen anything like this.”
