Crocodylus porosus

2011-12-31_12-06-30_704

These are estuarine or salt water crocodiles. The locals call them “saltys”. This tank of them must have had at least three dozen crocs, actively swimming and clibling on top of each other. As they swam up to the side of the tank to watch us you could see the milky covers to their eyes that act like goggles for them under water. Pretty spooky, but cute!
