3-m crocodile sunning itself on the south-eastern bank of the River Tapoa, seen from one of the observation towers along the north-western bank of the river, a few km from the Tapoa entrance to Parc W in south-western Niger.
Definitely not even close to quality, but I wanted to include the shot in the set as the watching eye-shine of crocs added an exciting backdrop to my cautious search for frogs at the edge of this lake in Abuko.
Over 2m, maybe 3. In water, guarding mouth of river
Crocodylidae is a family of crocodylians that includes the true crocodiles which are the members of the subfamily Crocodylinae and the Tomistoma. Currently, the family includes two subfamilies; Crocodylinae and Tomistominae, with the latter being a subject of controversy whether it is a crocodile or belonging to the family, Gavialidae. Further genetic analysis has to be done to come to a final conclusion.
