SALTWATER CROCODILE

CROCODYLUS POROSUS

This image conveys a large male saltwater crocodile resting on a riverbank in northern Queensland. The saltwater crocodile is a modern day dinosaur that is an integral part of the precious ecosystem. I had the privilege to photograph the awe-inspiring predator in its natural habitat. An amazing experience!
