Thursday the 8th August 2013
This morning we left Darwin and drove to Jabiru. When we got there we went to Ubirr (oo-beer) in Kakadu National park. We saw the rock art that was thousands of years old, climbed the rocks to get a great view of the wetlands below and spotted crocs back at Cahills Crossing before they disappeared under the water ready for an attack. One of the crocs was eating a fish. We went back to the caravan park and watched a slideshow about crocodiles.

pools

by awesome Ashdon wood

pool signs are very important because if you think there's too much information on it because it might say no swimming so that's why its important to read signs. Spas you are not aloud to swim in it because the gas is making the bubbles and the gas will come out with it so you will be sick. I am running out of idea's so that's enough of it so bye

crocodiles

by Ashdon wood that's a star

we have seen a lot of wild crocs as well as lizards. Crocs like to eat fish, meat and well you know its people.saltwater crocs can eat baby freshwater crocs did you know that. They hide in bushes to hide from there food and when they come close to the crocodile they jump out fast then you can run and eat them. They do not have enemies so they only die by old age. so we have learnt about crocodile today so bye. sighned ASHDON WOOD

We got to go in one of the engines and got a picture. We left the planes and went back inside to the museum. We left and went for a drive.
