A man has been attacked by a crocodile at Lizard Island on Queensland's Great Barrier Reef.
The 33-year-old was snorkelling at Anchor Bay when the crocodile struck on Wednesday about 4pm.
"It's believed a man was bitten on the head and neck," an Environment and Science department spokesman said in a statement on Thursday.
A Royal Flying Doctor Service crew transported the man to Cairns Hospital suffering non-life-threatening injuries.
He remains in the hospital in a stable condition, a Queensland Health spokeswoman said.
A team of wildlife officers are expected to travel to Lizard Island, northeast of Cooktown, to remove the animal.
