Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Wild Croc Territory is a reality series featuring professional Australian animal wranglers relocating crocodiles in the Outback. It highlights the importance of respecting and protecting wildlife, and family is also a major theme. Rifles are visible (and sometimes shot), and there's lots of animal violence; on occasion dead animals are shown. One wrangler shows off his missing fingers. It contains some strong cursing.
Is It Any Good?
The lively series features popular Australian animal wrangler Matt Wright and his colleagues doing one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. As he tracks, traps, and wrestles crocodiles to create a safer environment for them and for humans, Wright also highlights the fact that the animals should both be respected and understood. Granted, some of the scenes feel a bit staged for the cameras, especially when his wife and son are present. But watching the cast struggle with the ferocious reptiles and other dangerous animals can feel a little harrowing, especially when the wranglers have to enter the water or find ways to safely subdue them. If you like wildlife shows, Wild Croc Territory will be sure to entertain.
