Abstract
Remote video cameras recorded eight instances of nest excavation and parental transport of offspring to the water by Australian freshwater crocodiles (Crocodylus johnstoni) inhabiting Lake Argyle in northwestern Australia. Parental assistance during hatching appears to be vital for successful emergence of hatchlings from nests in this area.
