Never smile at a crocodile

Never smile at a crocodile,
No, you can't get friendly with a crocodile,
Don't be taken in by his welcome grin,
He's imagining how well you'd fit within his skin.

Never smile at a crocodile,
Never dip your hat and stop to talk awhile,
Never run, walk away, say good-night, not good-day,
Clear the aisle but never smile at Mister Crocodile.

From “Peter Pan”.

All taken on the banks of the Chobe River in Botswana…. they were EVERYWHERE! Please enlarge all for full smiley snappiness!

Come closer, deary!

The green-eyed monster which doth mock that meat it feeds on…

wow! these are superb! Great set! Reminds me of the Crocs of the Ngurumeti River in Tanzania! They have a real feast once a year during the wilberbeast migration!
