Vacationers Swim with Deadly Saltwater Crocodile and Live to Tell About It

Crocosaurus Cove theme park in Darwin City, Australia puts you in an acrylic cage to come face-to-face with a deadly 2,000-pound saltwater crocodile. The “Cage of Death” encases its swimmers in 1.5-inch acrylic panels for a 15-minute rendezvous with Choppa, the aggressive resident reptile. The teeth marks convince you just how close you are to the jaws of life.
