Kyabram Croc to get $150,000 home

'Getcha' to be moved to bigger enclosure

July 2, 2014 3:15am

With the biggest smile in town local croc 'Getcha' has gotten too big for his enclosure.

‘‘Getcha’’ is getting too big and Kyabram Fauna Park is calling for community support to build a new $150000 crocodile enclosure.

Park general manager Ron Pope said the 2.6m long, more than 50kg croc was starting to get cramped in his enclosure.

‘‘We knew when we got him there would only be a short life cycle for the existing enclosure,’’ he said.

‘‘Because they live so long, Getcha could end up being almost 700kg and more than five metres long or bigger, so he needs a new home.’’
