[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The gharial (Gavialis gangeticus), also called Indian gavial or gavial, is the only surviving member of the once well-represented family Gavialidae, a long-established group of crocodilians with long, slender snouts. The gharial is listed as a critically endangered species by IUCN.

The gharial is one of the three crocodilians found in India, the others being the Mugger crocodile and the Saltwater crocodile. It is one of the longest of all living crocodilians.

Hello Yuval,
A fine capture of this threatened species of crocodile, the Gharial. The POV is great and shows its features with fine sharpness and natural colours. If the gharial were more to the right the composition would be better.
Pity you don't take part by giving critiques!
Regards,
Ivan
