American Crocodile

Crocodylus acutus


Fairly large river that has quite a few fish and can seasonally rise by a few meters in this spot.


This is the big resident crocodile in the Sapoa River next to the Cañas Castilla Lodge in Costa Rica. He's grown quite a bit since the first time I visited. Higher resolution images can be seen on my Flickr page.
