Hi Chris,

I have just returned from a trip to Karumba and then north where I stayed
at Dorunda.  While I was there the campers on the next site reported a huge
flying fox colony at the western end of the lake numbering several
thousands.  They were not sure of the species of flying fox except they
were red but the interesting thing was the number of freshwater corcodiles
lined up along the banks under the colony ready to catch any poor
unfortunate baby or adult which happened to fall their way.   Opportunistic

Unfortunately you needed a boat to get there so I did not get to see this
for myself.
