Big croc a Facebook hit after cool hose down
THE Colonel comes when he's called.
A video of Rockhampton Zoo's big crocodile posted on Facebook has snapped up more than 2400 views.
It's the latest cool addition to the zoo's Facebook page.
The video shows the Colonel enjoying a feed before a cooling hose down.
"We feed him in his lock away area so that he associates it with a good place to be," a zookeeper's post on the page says.
"This makes locking him away to do enclosure and pond maintenance easy and stress free for everyone, including the Colonel.
"To let him know that feeding time has finished, we give him a nice hose down, which he seems to enjoy."
