Nile crocodile skull,
This photo has nothing special but I just wanted to show how efficient these jaws can be !
The upper and lower jaws perfectly fit together
The nile crocodile has already been well documented by Peter van Zoest ,see his photo : http://www.treknature.com/gallery/photo189961.htm
Slide taken with a Nikon F4 at the lodge in Mwense on the Luapula river in July 1998
Reproduced with Slide Copying Adapter mounted on Nikon Bellow PB-6

Interesting picture. Hopefully this crocodile died of 'natural' causes rather than being killed needlessly. Anyways, it would have been nice if you placed any ordinary object beside this skull - it would give a sense of scale as right now, it is hard to put a dimension on it (at least for a person who has never seen one in real life). At any rate, its an interesting shot, TFS.

Best Regards,


Hi Albert,
good pic of this skull, intersting POV.
Regards. Ferran

Hi Albert

I like it, look at all those hoolow areas in the upper jaw. It a great capture, impressive teeth. TFS
