"Croc Lady" Vicki Lowing has more bite than bark around the home because as well as her 16-year-old son, Andrew, it's also where her crocodiles Johnie, Fovian and Jilfia live as part of one very unusual family! Aussie Vicki, 53, who has kept crocs for more than 30 years, says her reptiles are now totally domesticated and she claims she can even communicate telepathically with 14-year-old Johnie, a 1.5 metre (5ft) freshwater female weighing 12kg. Saltwater croc, Jilfia, is aged three and at 2.4 metres (8ft) and 30kg, she is already the size of a 10-year-old. Vicki doesn't know if Jilfia is a boy or a girl yet, but a crocodiles sex can usually be determined aged five with an examination. Little freshwater croc Fovian, is about 45cm long and just 4kg. Fovian lives in the bath because of his tiny size. Despite Johnie nipping her a decade ago when the freshwater croc had an infection and was a bit cranky, there have been no nasty injuries from the notorious predators. But Vicki admits he has to keep her distance from saltwater beast, Jilfia, because being a saltie she has a nastier temper than the other crocs. Despite that, Vicki still takes them all for walks whenever they look as if they need a bit of exercise.
