In the Wild {1} | Crocodiles

We visited Jong’s Crocodile Farm while in Kuching (Sarawak, Malaysia).  This is the closest I’ve ever been to a crocodile. The only thing separating me from this croc was a chain-link fence.  If I’d dared reach my arm through one of the holes, I could’ve touched it (and maybe have had my arm bitten off!).

There was this pond that was totally covered with tiny plants (like the ones you see on the croc above).  The only way you could tell there were crocs in the pond was when there was movement in the plants.  When the crocs come out from the pond, they’d be wearing these little pond plants on them.  These little pond plants looked a bit incongruous dotting the crocs’ heads and bodies –making the crocodiles look rather comical, but no less dangerous, for sure.
