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.
