Wow, if the predated croc was large, the one eating it must have been a monster!

One more croc pic: several times we were right on top of some large crocs guarding their nests. I found their eyes fascinating. Nikon D4 with 200-400 f4 VR lens.

I think these are harmless green tree snakes. There were 3 slithering around a bush in camp.

The zebra made it to the other side. The croc wasn't finished though.

This little wildebeest didn't make it.

The wildebeests were cautiously curious about this smaller croc, but it didn't deter them from crossing.

The croc in the background watched as the wildes crossed. The croc disappeared when 3 hippos surfaced near it.

Not a mamba - note head shape and markings on head - probably some kind of sand snake or grass snake (harmless).

Selous River Camp

Rufous Beaked Snake, Rhamphiophis oxyrhynchus.

Taken at Selous River Camp, Tanzania.

 

He stayed around in camp for quite some time and we were lucky enough to get quite a few pictures of him - these are two of our favourites.

Selous River Camp

This poor little croc came out of the Rufiji River on the end of a fishing line!

 

We carefully removed the hook and let him go again but were lucky enough to have the camera close by for a quick picture before he went.
