Not the most handsome of critters but he seems to make up for it with a good sense of humor. He's almost charming! :) Found this "laughing" crocodile at the San Antonio Zoo last winter.

Reynaldo D. Reyes level-classic July 10, 2012

With all those sharp teeth and powerful jaws, he's probably jokingly asking whether his eyes are half open or half closed to all the daring souls. Either way, I don't want to find out. Love your excellent capture and presentation Val. #10223701

Karen Bacon July 11, 2012

Jack Gaskin July 27, 2012

I started to cruise your gallery and stopped right away at this fellow. I love Crocs & Gators especially this type of pose. Lets everyone see what the business side of these BAD BOYS is all about.
It's especially nice since he's in clean water and not only has CLEAN TEETH but from the look of it ALL OF THEM . Have seen BIG fellows missing half their teeth before the new ones grow in. Like Sharks it NEVER STOPS REPLACING THEM,
