Our Casanova crocs

OUR crocs are, well, at it like rabbits.

It seems there's no aphrodisiac like thunder storms and lightning if you're a crocodile.

Recent storms have worked the region's crocs into such a breeding frenzy that CQ's Koorana Crocodile Farm is hoping for one of its biggest egg harvests.

"The crocs are very stirred up,'' farm director Jason Lever said.

"The rain has been excellent. It's like an aphrodisiac for them. The crocs are absolutely loving it.''

Mr Lever said the reptiles had been doing the crocodile rock since rain started a few weeks ago.

Females had been fighting over who would mate next.

Mr Lever said the farm could expect a bumper crop of more than 1800 eggs if the rain stopped and then continued again in the next few weeks.
