    Hello,

    You take some great photos! The second picture of the albino gives the impression that he is "smiling" for the photo shoot. lol

    The Gharial is an ugly looking thing. lol

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Rich- Naw, the Gharial is a well designed fish eating machine.

    Jason - Most commonly these caimans are listed as "smooth-fronted caimans" The males typically reach a total length of 1.7 to 2.3 meters with females being slightly smaller.

    Thanks, Adam. I use Nikon equipment my current work horse camera is a Nikon D100.

    I agree Crocodilians don't make good pets for most people. For an idea of what's involved visit our Crocodilian Captive Care FAQ at - http://crocodilian.com/crocfaq/

    I know Adam I know. Have no fear, not allowed by Florida standards anyway. For my age at least.

    Either you have a really good telephoto lens or your nuts!! A little to close for my comfort zone, I would end up as dinner.

    LOL! As long as I stay within their "comfort zone" there's no problems.

    Thanks!


    Thanks for the very kind words.
    The photos posted were obtained over several decades of photography. Most of my work is with indigenous animals but I never pass on a trip to an animal rescue, zoo or wildlife sanctuary.

    Unfortunately, the cost of the camera body is insignificant when compared to the price of a high-quality lens or two.
