Six-Dog-Eating Crocodile

As I was taking photos of the Thornbush Dasher, Erika warned, “whoa—there’s the crocodile!” The reptile swam low in the water, away from us, towards the center of the pond. You may recall that the ranch foreman had given us permission to walk to the pond on condition that we be alert for the crocodile that had consumed six farmyard dogs. Crocodiles, you also may recall from an earlier post, have “catholic” diets. Not interested in testing this crocodile’s religious, or species preference, we heeded the warning sign and hurried back to the Ensenada Lodge.
