The Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife department posted the image on Facebook with the “Remember, you are in croc country.”

The muddy picture perfectly hides the croc, with only one tiny detail giving them away.

Facebook users have been desperately trying to spot the hidden saltwater crocodile, complementing the photographer on his impressive shot.

One user joked that the croc was ...waiting on the COVID border to open”, with another asking ...Why isn’t he/she wearing a mask?....

A second user wrote: “This is how I’ll die. I honestly couldn’t see anything.”

Some commenters were quick to focus on the danger, with some saying ...aren't you glad we don't have crocs here!!..., while others joked ...jump in the mud, it’ll be safe....

The government has warned any body of water in the Top End region of Australia “may contain large and potentially dangerous crocodiles”.

Saltwater crocodiles in particular - which can grow up to 6m - can stay underwater for at least an hour and float with only eyes and nostrils exposed.

Some users commented on the Facebook post ...Salties are amazing! Have always been in absolute awe of them..., others described the creature as a ...bloody evil looking thing....

The Australian parks department also linked the governments ...Be Crocwise' page.

The page reads: ...When it comes to crocodiles, the Northern Territory (NT) Government takes your safety seriously, but ultimately how you behave around crocodile habitats is your responsibility....

Last month a boy was left with horrific injuries when he was viciously attacked by a crocodile while playing with his mates on holiday in Cancun, Mexico.

Crocodiles are fierce, cold-blooded predators which brutally attack and kill about 1,000 people a YEAR - many more than sharks.
