(Study Guide) Reptilian Battleground
Saltwater crocodiles are fearsome predatory giants. Flatback turtles are some of the most hard-nosed sea turtles in the ocean. Few people knew they ever met, let alone knew about the epic battle that kicks off when they do. Every year a tranquil tropical island off Australia's north coast is invaded by commando crocs and tank-like turtles, laser-fast lemon sharks and search-and-destroy seagulls. Crab Island's beautiful beaches become a tense arena, staging a gladiatorial showdown which happens nowhere else on the planet, and which has never been filmed before.
The film is most suitable for Years 7-9 Science but could be adapted for use with Senior Science Biology Unit. Additional learning areas include Geography, Arts, Sustainability and Literacy.
