ANOTHER photo has emerged of more "idiots" risking life and limb by larking about atop a crocodile trap in the Territory.

These bikini-clad ladies were spotted singing in the rain, using champagne bottles as microphones, while standing on a croc trap in a crocodile-infested river in Maningrida


Their mates were in a fishing boat several metres away taking photos.

The image, taken at the weekend, surfaced yesterday - a day after the Northern Territory News published a picture on the front page of two male tourists tempting fate by doing a similar thing at Jim Jim Falls in Kakadu National Park.

The hooligans were laughing and joking as they posed as cowboys riding atop the trap.

Park ranger and crocodile expert Garry Lindner said the behaviour of the men was absurd.

"Crocs are attracted to the bait in the traps, so it is extremely dangerous to fool around like this," he said.

Readers from across the nation were outraged over Tuesday's story, which was viewed by thousands on national news website News.com.au

One reader suggested the photo caption should have read: "Dinner is served! Tonight's menu features two courses of stupid."

And another browser said: "I don't know about a croc trap but it certainly works as a moron trap."

Other comments included "The Darwin Awards were invented because of people like this!" and "What dopes! And people wonder why they get eaten alive?".

Another reader posted: "Darn, they escaped again. Who is responsible for not securing the bait correctly?"

And an Alice Springs man said: "I would have expected that nearly all people would have the brains not to climb on a croc trap. I know this area, and although there's only a small chance of actually having crocs in there at this time of year, it's not unheard of."

But not all agreed it was a dangerous act and some actually praised the men.

"Way to go! I'd do it if I was there too," a reader posted online. "Great fun it looks like. Should be more of it."

Zhuk,

Hey maybe you can recruit them to fly into the US for the FTFPALOOZA!! After all we are MUCH more interesting than an old Croc and INFINENTLY more dangerous. :cool:

I would love to see Tango chasing them around a trap in his pink tutu and trying to sprinkle pixie dust on them. :eek:

Iíll supply bottles of Gentleman Jack single barrel to the lasses (this is the US you know, we donít do no stinking champagne). :D

After hitting every other flat surface in the house, the last place I ask to be mounted by them is right above the fireplace! 'Cuz I'd crawl 4 miles for their vertical smiles.........

Bungee gone wrong = going splat; Croc tempting gone wrong = being chewed/drowned to death. I'd have to go with splatting. :D

its all in young fun too i know growing up we swam in gator infested waters and when we were younger it was just what we did, now that i think about it, it was the dumbest thing we had ever done lol, you would think we would have learned our lesson the first or second time we got chased out of the water by a gator
