I love these amazing reptiles and always try and spend time at the Sweni Hide where sightings are often great. Thanks for sharing the pics.

Hi all,

Any chance someone can tell what this big fella was feeding on ?
The carcass looked pretty solid as he had some trouble to break and swallow it and it took him a few minutes of work before being able to swallow it all;
the pictures were taken at Sunset dam last month

thanks

Nice pics elpaco & CV!

My favourite place to watch crocs from has to be the Sweni Hide - I never fail to spot some from there. Any other hides match Sweni for viewing crocs?
