Location:

Noosa, Queensland

Description:

A photo taken by a friend in Noosa. Great photo perfectly showing this amazing animal.

It's a great example of how they flatten out their belly when sun bathing/basking. This is to increase their size, thus warming (crocodiles are cold blooded) more effectively.

Interesting colour scheme, we're not sure why this one is so dark, generally speaking they are more green in colour so as to camouflage better.
