A Nile Crocodile - Crocodylus niloticus - came out of the water and then headed straight towards me, a unique and unsettling experience, was pleased to capture the moment. I photographed the magnificent reptile near Skukuza, Mpumalanga South Africa.
Nile Crocodile by Michael Poliza - Stunning photo. The Nile croc is not endangered. It is the second largest reptile on earth, the largest accurately measured was 21 feet long and weighed over a ton. Are you scared yet?
