Open Wide


When at Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary, we got scarily close to this appropriately-named mugger crocodile. Believe it or not, its open mouth was not a gesture of defiance or defense but rather the position it was in the entire time. These crocodiles tend to be frighteningly still for long periods, before a sudden flash of movement signals their descent into the water or their attack. Trust me, you don’t want to be on the wrong end of those teeth.

    1. That is certainly a train of thought to consider. But I doubt individuals such as these are the types to shed tears – perhaps they loose a tooth every time they do. This was a short post as I am off tonight; for the next week my posts will be scheduled.
