Never smile at a crocodile: photo of the day

Never smile at a crocodile‘ the old song went.  This is estuarine crocodile certainly has a wide-mouthed smile!

Photo taken when I was on a river safari as part of my stay at the fabulous Proboscis Lodge on the Kinabatangan River – Sabah’s biggest river.

They’re easy to spot at night as their eyes shine red in the torchlight. We saw many of these reptiles sunning themselves on the riverbanks. I have blogs about this fabulous area scheduled for 1st and 8th April
