|Some shots from a recent trip through Peru...|
This 4.5m male estuarine crocodile was attracted by our tour guide with a chicken carcass and reared up showing its jaws and teeth to good effect.
The tour was on a boat on the Adelaide River east of Darwin in Australia's Northern Territory. All the crocodiles in this river are wild and this was only one of around 5 similar sized animals we saw in a stretch of only a few kilometres of our launch point down river. Being on the tour we were able to get within only a few metres of these amazing predators.
And yes he did get the chicken in the end.
