So cool! I've never seen one with such amazing tusks before! They've all been females.

Hi scasto,

Welcome to the forums ...

That would be great to see a Crocodile, but I doubt it. The reason being that Crocs will rather stay in one of the streams or rivers .... the Crib won't have food for them as well.

You never know with crocs. They turn up at the strangest places. If the timbivati were hosting crocs recently and the water subsided to such a condition, that they were too crowded or without sufficient water then they will just get out and walk to look for some other place. Crocs are known to have done this in previous times of drought. But I agree with W@H and doubt that it is a croc in the crip.

Crocs in crips

Unread postby LaeveldLeeu » Thu Sep 29, 2005 7:45 am

Hi Everyone

I once saw a 1meter croc in a small cement crip at the Olifant drinkgat(waterhole) in Kruger. much smaller than this new crip on cam.
