It was real Selma…I had an extra-long lens on my camera at the time…no way would I stand too close to a saltwater crocodile!

A freshwater — sure. They aren’t known to be aggressive.

The water was pretty green there, so probably why he looks a bit green too!

A few more croc pictures for you to enjoy — — there were a few close encounters in our dinghy at one stage — I cringe looking back at our young bravery..or insanity?!

Crocodiles — the one far left is a freshwater croc — they are not known to be aggressive — photos my own

Thanks for reading and the extra story about the snake bite. Wowsers…not such a fun outcome there. A painful lesson for sure.

Thanks as always for being you.
