Tourists can now have a face-to-face encounter with a saltwater crocodile separated just by a thin plastic barrier.

This tourist attraction is based on the Great Barrier Reef in Darwin and it is called the Cage of Death.
Holiday-makers pay the sum of £103 to be put into the aquatic enclosure for about 30-minutes to have a close-up encounter with the beast.

Before being lowered into the closure, the person is first hoisted above the water in order to see the crocodile swimming below, before he or she is put into the waters.

When the cage is in the water, the crocodile keepers feed the large reptile so it moves around in the water.

The crocodiles are fed with a chicken diet, with beef and fish just as thrilled visitors watch the 16-foot beast move about to catch food.

The tourists are given an around view around the enclosure as the crocodile moves and swim around the little cage.

After about 15 minutes inside the water, the fun lovers are then lifted to safety. The cage which is circular is then held up by a monorail.It can be used by up to two tourists per time.

Nellie Winters a German tourist says it was an awesome experience, as one is just so close to the reptile which is so huge.Even though she was scared, she was also fascinated as she thought the beast was going to eat her up.She said she initially was not nervous but when she came close to it she was shaken.

This monster reptile which is considered to be very dangerous to humans is the largest of its kind and can grow as long as 20 feet.Its teeth can grow as long as four inches long.

They are found across the northern part of Australia and can also be found India and other parts of south-east Asia.

This creative invention known as the Cage of Death is operated by Crocosaurus Cove, which has seven crocodiles, including a pair which breeds called William and Kate.

The other crocodiles at the Crocosaurus Cove have more fearsome names, like Chopper and Axel.

The Cove also allows visitors to hold and feed baby crocs with a fishing line.

The attraction center has been around since 2011.
