Ben Cropp - Wonders Of A Billabong
Price: $4.98 / €3.59
Documentary 52 minutes ~ Color
For this documentary, Ben Cropp selects the best billabong he has ever seen, just outside Litchfield National Park in the Northern Territory. This tropical billabong swarms with life and Ben captures its pristine scenic beauty with amazing wildlife, their specialised behaviour and the drama of predator verses prey that is a daily upheaval in what appears to be a tranquil lagoon.
In its waters lurk crocodiles, both dangerous saltwater and harmless fresh water species. They prey on the many catfish, barramundi, turtles and file snakes of this billabong. There are other lizards too including water dragons that feed on smaller prey.
This permanent water hole also attracts land creatures including the dingo, wallaby, wild pig and buffalo. For the lord of the billabong, the crocodile, their visit to the billabong is a chance meal. Ben captures on film the great croc stalking and taking a wallaby and wild pig. This HD film captures the beauty and drama above and below the water of this uniquely Australian icon.
