Heya Lovelies…It has been a while since I Shared a Photograph of one of my passions >>Wildlife<<. So allow me to treat you to a few pics of Basking Nile Crocodiles, photographed in the Kruger National Park, South Africa during a quick weekend away during August 2016.
While you enjoy these pics, Here are a few Interesting Crocodile facts worth a read…
DID YOU KNOW
LATIN NAME : Crocodylus niloticus
~They are famous for being the World’s Largest Living reptiles, and can live between 70-100 years.
~ They can weigh anywhere between 225-750kg, and grow to a length of about 2.4m – 5.5m.
~ They are Carnivores, so their diet includes insects, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals
~ In Kruger National Park – These Crocodiles are the biggest predator of the national park’s waterways.
~ The Nile Crocodiles found in Kruger National Park, is the largest species in Africa and the 2nd largest in the World.
So the next time you driving around in Kruger National Park, keep an eye out for these Prehistoric Animals, which can be found in the Parks Lakes, Dams and Rivers. What may at first seem like just another Log along the river banks, May just turn out to be these Scaly Giants of the Waters.
If you spend your whole life waiting for the storm, you’ll never enjoy the sunshine. ~Morris West~
So Be like the Nile Crocodile, and go out , BASK AND ENJOY YOUR SUNSHINE!!!
