The story behind the biggest crocodile ever caught in Australia

Hunters had tried to get this crocodile for decades and were astounded that a ‘lady’ did what no man could.

That shot would make the family famous because at 8.6 metres, the reptile was, and still is, the biggest ever killed or captured in Australia.

Back in July 1957, Australia's largest known crocodile, 8.64 metres long, was killed with a single shot on the banks of the Norman River by a Polish immigrant Krystina Pawlowski. The shot made her a worldwide celebrity and earned her the nickname One Shot along with a place in the Guiness Book of Records.
