RP, it doesn't look like any Photoshopping was done and I can can believe it is a true picture.
A true monster and real pity it's not around any longer.

RP, the first and third one yes (Mara River) while the middle one was taken in KNP from the bridge near Letaba.

RP, Mara croc's seem different from most African croc's, and not only in size. I've seen some that were more yellow than brown and some that were close to black.
This summer I'll be back in that area and also around the Lake Victoria area where some of the biggest croc's are found.

Hello, PRWIN!

Pretty sure it's Kruger....Sunset Dam seems to ring a bell!

Think it was on the forums somewhere! :hmz:

Thats a monster and it certainly looks as if that is the area around Sunset dam and I know there are some pretty big crocs in there!

Saw on a fishing site that a small croc was caught in the Hartebeespoortdam the other day, at the De Rust venue! So much for wading into the water to cast, but especially to net the fish!
