In mid-2007 I went on a holiday crossing Australia South to North from Adelaide to Darwin by road, along the way I visited a crocodile farm near Darwin where I got this great photo of a crocodile resting in the midday sun – it’s got its jaws open as a way of cooling down it’s body in the heat.

  1. Being from New Zealand we dont have these reptiles roaming around our waterways. But like snakes and spiders I am intrigued by them, but I dont want to come across them while hiking
    Cheers

  2. Were you that close to the crocodile or did you use a zoom lense? I don’t think I could handle being that close to one!

  3. It’s so different when I saw a crocodile from a local zoo, we were not allowed to get near them. This one looks close to being real, at a very close distance.

  4. That’s a pretty cool picture! Thanks for the wallpaper!

    That croc also looks like he needs a visit to the dentist… lotsa yellow teeth 🙂

  5. I live in the deep south part of the States. Southwestern Mississippi to be specific. A few years back our gator population was practically at zero, but due to laws protecting them they have made a stong comeback. So much so that now they are becoming a problem in many areas–endangering small pets and children. Seems like we have more attacks each year. Something unforseen just a few years ago. Governments always have good intentions, but seldom do their programs work out. Politicans just mess things up most of the time. Your photos of the croc. are great. The detail is amazing. I used to be a shutter bug, but gave it up a number of years ago.
