The saltwater crocodile is the animal most feared by Australian Aborigines.
A member of this community will travel over land to find many examples of this feared animal.
These dances call on the great spirit of the king of the crocodiles for support and protection. Bloodcurdling screams; frenetic, rhythmic movements.
It is said that the king of the crocodiles is always asleep: for this reason the dances and shouts last until dawn.
