Prince Harry gets chummy with an Australian crocodile. (Northern Territory Government)

Prince Harry may have thought he had his hands full when fending off lovelorn fans in Canberra, Australia, but he really did this past weekend (May 15) when reeling in a flailing crocodile caught in a trap.

Harry is currently on tour with the Australian Army and went on a mission with the Crocodile Management Team in the Northern Territory. The Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife organization published a snap of the rescue on their Facebook page

Minister for Parks and Wildlife Bess Price released a statement on the “top secret mission,” saying, “Territory rangers are the best in the world in crocodile management and it is a true reflection of their excellent reputation that they were trusted to give Prince Harry such a hands-on experience.”

This was the first time the team had met a member of the royal family with Wildlife Manager Erin Britton saying, “I wasn’t sure what to expect at first because you don’t meet royalty every day, but I found him very approachable and easy to chat with. I thought Harry came across as self-confident but humble.”

Did Prince Harry just up his cool factor?
