Being on board as a Cruise ship speaker, Mick Pitman gave 3 fascinating talks. Who is he?? A professional crocodile hunter from Darwin, Northern Territories, Australia.
The movie “Crocodile Dundee” was patterned after Mick Pitman, known in his parts as Crocodile Mick. He doesn’t present the macho image that actor Paul Hogan did (He’s now 74). Mike is rather studious looking and not bulging with muscles.
Mick was a croc poacher for 16 years. The cops just could not catch him. Now he’s gone straight and was given absolution if he agreed to hunt only those crocs that were threatening people.
He gets to keep the animal to tan the hide and sell. What a character. This was his first pubic speaking appearance and what a character he is. He lectures in shorts with a crocodile leather waistcoat, bare-sleeved and with plenty of Aussie jargon, Mate!
He had stories of snagging crocodiles and hauling them aboard a small powerboat. His films showed how he wraps duct tape around their snouts. He has all 10 fingers to show he knows what he is doing.
