Croc study

This Nile Crocodile was one of the characters we encountered at Bayworld last weekend. Or would it sound cooler if I started with: On my last expedition down the mighty Zambezi River we encountered this croc next to our camp just after sunrise. We barely escaped with our lives... but not before I snapped the following pics. Yeah, the last one sound much cooler.

Strike a pose (cool bit: He appeared stealthily out of the water...)


I can see you (cool bit: ... beady eye fixed on his intended prey - that's me...)

My Granma, what big teeth you've got (cool bit: ...teeth glistening in the morning sun...)

Open wide (cool bit: moments later he snapped... missing me by inches)
