NT Crocodile Conservation & Protection Society posted the photos to social media and speculated that Pearl could be the offspring of Michael Jackson, a famous white-headed crocodile that also called the Adelaide River home before he was killed after taking the life of fisherman Lanh Van Tran in 2014.

"Pearl has particularly touched our hearts as it is highly likely she is the offspring of Michael Jackson," the post on Facebook stated.
