Designers snap up Australia's crocodile farms

Crocodile farmers are fighting back after fashion houses take large bite out of the domestic market.

    A group of Australian crocodile farmers are taking on some of the world's largest designer names.

    They say brands such as Louis Vuitton and Hermes are trying to control the market for the skin of the animals.

    Crocodile skin is used to make some designer handbags and the meat is also sought after.
