Awurrapun WL180867

The freshwater crocodile (Crocodylus johnstoni), also known as the Australian freshwater crocodile, Johnstone's crocodile or the freshie, is a species of crocodile endemic to the northern regions of Australia. Unlike their much larger Australian relative, the saltwater crocodile, freshwater crocodiles are not known as man-eaters, although they bite in self-defence, and brief, nonfatal attacks have occurred, apparently the result of mistaken identity.
Dungalaba – crocodile, and a totem for the Larrakia people. Awurrapun – the Crocodile Dreaming Story or Crocodile, in the Batyamal (also known as Batjamalh) language from the Daly River region.
