Royal reptile!

Prince Harry's time in Australia got wild! The royal recently helped the Crocodile Management Team catch a crocodile in Darwin Harbour.

The 30-year-old used rope and his bare hands(!) to wrangle the animal, which was around 10-feet long. He even straddled it and posed for photos.

Bess Price, Minister for Australia's Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife organization, was impressed by Prince Harry's skills.

"Territory rangers are the best in the world in crocodile management and it is a true reflection of their excellent reputation that they were trusted to give Prince Harry such a hands-on experience," she said. "This top secret mission is sure to leave a unique lasting impression of the Territory with Prince Harry."

Prince William's younger brother was a gentleman as always during the outing. He spoke to all the members of the crocodile team and took direction easily. 

"I wasn't sure what to expect at first because you don't meet royalty every day, but I found him very approachable and easy to chat with. I thought Harry came across as self-confident but humble," Wildlife Ranger Erin Britton added. "He was very appreciative to the croc team for the opportunity to do something a bit different. He's a real sweetie."
