A 19-year-old on a family camping holiday in northern Australia had a lucky escape Monday when he fought off a crocodile which bit into his foot as he slept.Rowsell told the ABC he was not sure whether the crocodile was a freshwater variety or the larger and more feared saltwater type.In 2015 more than 250 of them were removed from waterways around Darwin, the capital of the Northern Territory, including a 4.25 meter-long (13.9 feet) male.Despite the dangers they pose for swimmers, boaters and fishermen, the Australian government in 2014 rejected the idea of crocodile safari hunts – saying there was a danger of "cruel and inhumane" behavior.
