    • It is the biggest of all living reptiles, males can weight up to 1,360 kg (3,000 pounds). So, you’re absolutely right, Janet. Always a treat to have you stop by, thanks so much. And you, too, have a wonderful weekend! 😀

    • This isn’t an alligator, it is a crocodile. We can sometimes mistake one for the other, because there are many similarities. One way to know the difference is that crocodiles have a pointy snout, while alligators have a more rounded snout. They live in different parts of the world. And an alligator is relatively docile compared to this big, bad, ferocious saltwater crocodile. Thanks for stopping by Stacey Ann.

  1. Wow. That is an impressive set of teeth. It’s amazing that it can smile and appear ferocious simultaneously. I sure how the shot was taken with a really long telephoto lens. 🙂

  2. Now,it’s my turn to laugh a little bit lol !What a posture of this “saltie” creature!Laughing?Threatening the photographer?Relaxing and enjoying life?I can’t tell,I’m simply laughing with the timing and the witty title!Best wishes for a lovely weekend,dear Jet 🙂

    • I am SO glad to give you a good laugh, dear Doda. A fun post, I’m glad you enjoyed it. We were cruising in a boat and this saltie got fairly close to the bank at one point. It was a pontoon boat, and big, so we were safe. It is always a supreme pleasure to have you visit, dear Doda. 😀 😀
