Description

In the middle of the day we took a little boat trip on Lake St. Lucia, focused mainly on seeing crocs and hippos.
Two large crocodiles were sun-bathing right near the dock, and we saw a couple babies in the water.

Description from Wikipedia

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.
