Estuarine Crocodile at Sg Buloh, Singapore.

Started another memorable day with a trip to Sg. Buloh to look at shore birds / migratory birds and i was rewarded with this shot on our way back after a usual birdwatching trip. It is a wild estuarine crocodile spotted near the main bridge of Visitor Centre...(between Hide 1 and 1a). It was just lying still basking in the shade of the sun. It is about 1.6 m long and i was told by one of the Sg. Buloh volunteers (Keith), it is about 2 years old only...!!!! Just imagine how big it will be in a couple of years time !!!! wow....
