• Burt the ‘psychic’ croc tips Aussie PM to win election


    SYDNEY: A reptile star from global hit film “Crocodile Dundee” has picked incumbent Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to win national elections on Saturday. Burt, a five-meter long (16.4 ft) saltwater crocodile aged more than 80 years, took his time to choose between Turnbull and Labor opposition leader Bill Shorten. “He tends to have a think about these decisions,” James Robinson of Crocosaurus Cove in the northern city of Darwin, where Burt lives, told Agence France-Presse. Images of the two leaders were hung off ropes above a pool where the croc was swimming, with a chunk of fish attached below each of the photos. The 700-kilogram (1,545-pound) croc—a “confirmed bachelor” that has eaten three girlfriends—is not the first reptile at the facility to make an election prediction.
