Akhbar Metro dan The Star telah melaporkan kehadiran buaya laut di Tanjung Tuan , Port Dickson pada awal tahun 2009, namun tiada sebarang tindakan dilakukan hinggalah seorang pengunjung pantai  di Port Dickson diserang  pada awal tahun 2010 yang disyakki buaya, ikan yu atau mungkin pemangsa (predator) laut lain.

Buaya Tanjung Tuan

dirakam di Port Dickson oleh seorang ahli persatuan Pencinta Alam Malaysia (MNS), Khoo Swee Seng yang terkejut dan teruja kerana berpeluang meneropong seekor buaya air masin yang kebetulan timbul di perairan Tanjung Tuan semalam.

Beliau yang datang ke situ setiap tahun bagi memenuhi hobinya meneropong pelbagai jenis raptor di kawasan itu dan terkejut apabila ternampak kehadiran seekor buaya sepanjang kira-kira 2.5 meter.

“Saya tidak menyangka ketika cuba meneropong pelbagai raptor di kawasan ini tiba-tiba objek yang saya lihat dalam teropong itu adalah seekor buaya,” katanya.

Kejadian itu berlaku kira-kira jam 10.30 pagi kelmarin ketika beliau dan isteri bersama dua sukarelawan datang ke Tanjung Tuan dekat sini.

“Setiap tahun saya datang ke Tanjung Tuan sempena Minggu Melihat Raptor untuk menyaksikan penghijrahan pelbagai jenis raptor seperti helang yang menyeberang dari Pulau Rupat, Sumatera ke sini, tetapi kali ini, saya tidak menyangka seekor buaya berada di kawasan ini.

“Buaya yang dipercayai buaya air masin atau nama saintifiknya, estuarine crocodylus prosus, muncul kira-kira 20 meter dari pantai selama kira-kira 30 minit dan kelihatan bergerak melawan arus ke arah selatan,” katanya.

Croc fears at Tanjung Tuan

The Star 16 Feb 2009. Beachgoers at Tanjung Tuan will have to be careful. An estuarine crocodile has been spotted nearby, the Malaysian Nature Society said.

The society’s communications head Andrew Sebastian said a team of bird watchers who were monitoring the hillside coastal mangrove areas for birds spotted the 2.5m crocodile on Saturday morning.

He said although there seemed to be no danger posed to beachgoers at present, rapid development of Tanjung Tuan and adjacent areas could bring the animal into conflict with humans.

“The wildlife and forest reserve does not cover a large area and there is a possibility that the crocodile will stray from its habitat and head for the populated beach area,” he said yesterday.

He said crocodiles had also been spotted by villagers living along the coast here over the past few years.

The wildlife and forest reserve in Tanjung Tuan, which is also known as Cape Rachado, covers 100ha and belongs to Malacca although it is located near Port Dickson.

It is the only hillside coastal mangrove area gazetted as a bird sanctuary in 1921 and as a permanent forest reserve in 1971.

Buaya Katak

Buaya Katak atau buaya air masin (saltwater atau estuarine crocodile' (Crocodylus porosus) adalah reptilia terbesar, dan sering kali dikatakan paling berbahaya kepada manusia. Ia terdapat dalam habitat yang sesuai di Asia Tenggara dan utara Australasia.

Buaya Katak mampu menangkap monyet, babi liar, dingo, haiwan ternakan, kerbau, ikan yu dan kadang-kala termasuk manusia.

Buaya Katak biasanya menghabiskan masa musim hujan tropika di sungai dan paya air tawar, bergerak kehulu kekuala pada musim kering, dan kadang kala bergerak jauh kelaut.

The population is sporadic in Indonesia and Malaysia with some areas harboring large populations (Borneo, for example) and others with very small, "at risk" populations.

Saltwater crocodiles are extremely dangerous animals, but data on attacks is limited outside of Australia, and estimates of human fatalities vary wildly between dozens to thousands annually.
