Now this might sting: Louanne Grasmeder gives the croc a waxing at the Parap Day Spa in Darwin
This looks like a job you could really get your teeth into.
Staff at a salon Down Under have given a particularly scaly customer a bikini wax and full body exfoliation.

The saltwater beast was borrowed from a crocodile research centre in Darwin, in Australia's Northern Territory, specially for the stunt.
And when it left it was like a new lady - ready for the rough and tumble of a crocodile mating season.
Louanne Grasmeder, business manager for the Parap Day Spa in Darwin, said: 'Breeding season is just around the corner.

'In the wet season, the male crocodiles are fighting it out over breeding sites and female crocodiles will be extremely territorial.'
Spa staff member Jamillah Allen quipped: 'The lengths we go for great training.'
