Watch those teeth!
First you untangle the net from the crocodile's body, carefully extricating its legs and tail, and then you concentrate on the jaws. Normally the crocodile bites the net so the first task is to open the jaws slightly so the net strands can be disengaged easily from the teeth. Normally the crocodile becomes very calm during this procedure, but you can never be too careful.
