Usually when you see crocodiles in the river, they are gliding smoothly and the blend in with the surface of the water, barely visible, such as the photos I showed a few days ago.
This crocodile took a lunge upward, giving us a nice view of his snout, jaw and teeth. Crocodiles can move very fast, especially in the water. I have gotten splattered by the mud of a crocodile rushing from the river bank into the water while I was photographing him.
The bite of a crocodile has more than ten times the pressure than the bite of a great white shark. I don't intend to test the difference.
This week we are showing photos of the Villa Melzi on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. If you have not been to the shores of Lake Como in Bellagio, Italy, come take a visit by clicking on the link to our website.
