Costa Rica Croc Walk~

When hiking in Costa Rica and Central America, one needs to not be so mesmerized by the flora and fauna,

that one fails to notice the crocodiles, which is actually quite easy to do, since they are so well camouflaged. Do you see them here? Looking like logs in the river?

Sometimes you won’t even see the crocs, but you will see the holes they rest in and their drag marks.

How doth the little crocodile 
improve his shining tail,
and pour the waters of the Nile
on every golden scale!
How cheerfully he seems to grin,       
how neatly spreads his claws,
and welcomes little fishes in,
with gently smiling jaws! (Lewis Carroll)

After you come upon a croc unexpectedly for the first time, you are far more vigilant in the future!

Cheers to you from Costa Rica’s crocs~

  2. Oh, my! You really set a mood with this post, Cindy! I think I will watch my step, even far away from crocodile country. 😀 Beautiful photos. The first one captures the interest of my eyes, and takes them around gently meandering turns. That’s a particularly great shot. Hugs on the wing!

  3. Eeeep! Mr Carroll, I am *not* fooled by ‘gently smiling jaws’ !! Their ‘maniacal smiles from treacherous jaws’ probably doesn’t sound as lyrical but I call ’em as I see ’em 😀 LOL ! Fake logs that rip you to pieces is unnerving ! I think I’ll meet you for coffee back in town and skip the hike. Great shots as always ! xK
