    Izzy the saltwater crocodile has died at national aquarium well short of the 80 years. Izzy went to the aquarium as a baby around 20 years ago. A vet will do a post morton on Izzy to establish its cause of death. The aquarium said it planned to organise a fitting farewell. Izzy went to the aquarium from a crocodile farm in singapore.
