Ladies of the River

Estuarine Crocodile
(also known as Saltwater Crocodile)

Daintree River, Queensland, Australia

August 2007



Some old photos from a cruise along the Daintree River back in 2007. 

We saw some nice birds: Rainbow Bee-eaters, a Striated Heron, Brahminy Kites and Pacific Baza. 

I also recall some interesting crustaceans, but crocodiles were the most obvious presences. The cruise captain identified them all as females and we failed to find any big males. The ladies still looked menacing enough to me!







Pacific Baza
I have already put up one shot of this individual on a post a few years ago.
Sorry to be repetitive.
