[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had captured this photograph in Lower Sabie Sunset Dam, Kruger National Park, South Africa. We (me and my wife) were returning from our morning game drive and stopped here for an hour to cherish the beauty of mother nature.

Light was harsh and crocodile was little bit far from me. I took this picture from our car.

Here is a Juvenile Nile Crocodile....

The Nile Crocodile is found through out Africa. Large, lizard shaped reptile with four short legs and long muscular tail. The hide is rough and scaled.

Juvenile Nile Croc is dark olive to brown with darker cross bands on tail and body.
