SBWR on New Year’s Eve Part II


Continuing on my previous post, we saw a Estuarine crocodile (Crocodylus porosus) !!

It just surfaced out of the water and started basking on the banks, while we were watching intently for the birds at one of the observation hides :D daebak!

The other birds seem to be quite oblivious of the croc though.
