What's For Lunch Mr. Crocodile?
Ahhh...the American Crocodile.
So cute, right?
Honestly, I find the crocodile to be one of the most scary creatures on Earth.
This giant reptile can be found as far north as Florida and as far south as Venezuela.
This photo series was shot down in Costa Rica in the Corcovado National Park.
Here the crocs swim out into the ocean waves and catch their food.
Our crocodile is a pretty good fisherman!
He caught a Black Snook fish about 2 1/2 feet long.
Crocodiles can't chew, so our croc has to get the fish into the right position so he can swallow it whole.
As you can imagine, the fish didn't like this at all, and put up a pretty tough fight.
Photographer Anton Sorokin said, “The snook kept struggling and the croc wasn't about to give up either. He [the crocodile] would rapidly tilt his head back, open his mouth and snap his jaws shut before the snook could fall out to rapidly reposition it into the best position for swallowing.”
