Little Lizard

Australia has some fearsome critters. One of the deadliest (because he is at the top of the food chain) is the Saltwater Crocodile. We visited a small wild life preserve in Sydney and I had the opportunity to see one of the largest salt water crocodiles in captivity. The crocodile in these pictures measured over 18 feet long. How absolutely terrifying is that?? And how cool! (As long as he is in the cage!)

Those teeth are impressive. The pictures do not do justice to how large and powerful he was. I can only imagine how bad your day would be if he got hold of you. Of course, I can also imagine that your day would be over very quickly.
