crocodile on a limb

A juvenile Slender-snouted crocodile tries to escape notice, remaining motionless as we pass in a pirogue. Perhaps a frog or bird, or fish swimming below might be fooled into thinking he is part of the tree limb. We had more than a minute to make our photographs before he tired of the attention and dived beneath the waters of the Bongo River. The Bongo River forms the western boundary of Moukalaba-Doudou National Park and is one of the major rivers supplying water to N’Dogo Lagoon.
