A teenage boy is in hospital after he was bitten on the leg by a crocodile in a remote part of Arnhem Land of the Northern Territory in Australia.

AAP reports he was bitten on the leg by the croc, which measured one-metre, while hunting at a billabong in the remote community of Ramingining on Sunday.

He was treated at a clinic before being flown to Royal Darwin Hospital where he remains in a stable condition.

The ABC reports there were two fatal crocodile attacks in the Top End in recent weeks.
