::hard to see but 10 feet long!

:I recognize the spot in ENP. The crocs cross the dam at this spot from the freshwater side to the saltwater bay side every evening. Funny thing about this...both the crocs and the alligators cross the dam at the same time. I've got pictures of both...the crocs are much more timid and you have to be patient if you want to see them crossover the dam.

Flamingo marina.........know it well. Right across from the fish cleaning station, there is a small open spot on the canal bank, where the crocs like to bask. Coming back to the ramp from fishing, I spotted 2 German tourists in one of those rental canoes. The guy had the canoe right up to the bank with his girlfriend way up front getting a pic of a 7-8 foot adult. The croc was being quite photogenic, but if they spooked it, the only way into the water would have been past that canoe. I told them they will bite, and gave them the old Florida gator chop hand signal. They caught my drift and backed off a bit. I had caught enough fish that day, and wasn't looking forward to retrieving any foolish tourists with brown stained shorts.
