In some of these shots you can see the sexual dimorphism in #AmericanCrocodiles males grow larger with a less streamlined and more bulky skull. The last picture was of another pair  we saw hanging out in the flamingo marina. first. #EvergladesNationalPark #wildlifephotography #wilderness #wildlife #Herps #reptiles #Acutus

Last week the morning after a really cold night (for south Florida standards) we ventured out hoping to see #AmericanCrocodiles basking in the sun. Sure enough after about 3-4 hrs of paddling we came across this mating pair, “Cuddling” in the water. The female is above the male. They floated there nearly motionless taking in the sun and keeping an eye on us. Occasionally the female would close her eyes and open her mouth “caressing” the male first. #EvergladesNationalPark #wildlifephotography #wilderness #wildlife #Herps #reptiles #Acutus

Dozens of American Crocodiles sunning themselves along a Costa Rican river. They looked hungry. We stayed away!

The American crocodiles,found off the coast of Mexico are both shy and aggressive. However when they wander to more shallow areas away from their natural habitat, they become slightly easier to photograph. Dhritiman Mukherjee goes diving with the reptiles in the shallow lagoons and mangroves of Banco Chinchorro atoll reef and returns with some stunning pictures.

One of the largest #AmericanCrocodiles I have ever seen in the #Everglades. I went paddling some days ago hoping the cold weather would force crocs to bask and I’d have a better shot at seeing these elusive beautiful living dinosaurs and indeed I was fucking lucky! I Spotted from approx 100 meters away what i first thought was a large “gray mound”  when I used the binoculars I recognized the unmistakable scutes on that big ass back of his. I paddled as quietly as possible towards him until I was about 15ft away and then I noticed the wind was pushing me directly towards him so I made a little noise to awaken him, American crocodiles ( #Acutus )are not dangerous compared to Nile or Australian saltwater crocs (porosus) nevertheless respek! And this croc was so fucking big, (about as long as my 2 person canoe) I was afraid that if I scared it, it would violently launch itself into the water and the wake would overturn my canoe. It just stared at me with one eye open, an anhinga in the tree right above it freaked out when I got close but a croc this size fears very few things so he let me chill. So I did, I spent a great deal of time admiring it, photographing it while trying not to drift too close. Pardon the shaky camera, I was excited and nervous as fuck! #AmericanCrocodile #crocodylusacutus #Everglades #evergladesnationalpark #wildlife  #wildlifephotography #wilderness  #backcountry #paddling #kayaking #canoeing

If museum visits and walking tours just aren’t doing it for you anymore, maybe you should check out some adventurous activities for your next trip. Travelling is a perfect opportunity to leave your comfort zone. Try something new, search for the thrill! How about skin diving with American crocodiles in Mexico’s Banco Chinchorro Biosphere Reserve? Crocodiles are ancestral animals, whose origin goes back more than 200 million years. It’s truly exciting to observe these impressive animals which can grow up to six metres in length in their natural habitat. @yucatandivetrek‘s XTC dive center is the only dive operator with a private permit for Chinchorro. Be sure to enjoy a nice adrenaline rush when joining their tours! 🙂 #yucatandivetrek #mexico #divingmexico #offthebeatentrack #bancochinchorro #biospherereserve #americancrocodiles #crocodiles #crocs #naturalencounter #adrenaline #thrilling #adventure #getoutofyourcomfortzone #travelgoals #2019 #bucketlist #tourismpressarea

With an area of about 600 square kilometers, Florida's Ten Thousand Islands is one of the world's largest mangrove swamps. Much of its initial area was reduced by development, which led to mangrove conservation laws. One species struggling to survive in this critical habitat is the American Crocodile. 🐊 #WildlifeWednesday
✅ The American crocodile is considered at-risk in nearly all parts of its North, Central, and South American range. Survey data, except in the US, is poor or nonexistent, but conservationists agree that illegal hunting and habitat depletion due to climate change has reduced populations of this wide-ranging reptile to critical levels.
✅ A small, remnant population lives in southern Florida, but most are found in southern Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, and northern South America. Their habitat of choice is the fresh or brackish water of river estuaries, coastal lagoons, and mangrove swamps.
✅ A prehistoric-looking creature, it is distinguishable from its cousin, the American alligator, by its longer, thinner snout, its lighter color, and two long teeth on the lower jaw that are visible when its mouth is closed.
✅ This species is among the largest of the world's crocodiles, with Central and South American males reaching lengths of up to 20 feet. Males in the U.S. population rarely exceed 13 feet, however.
✅ Their diet consists mainly of small mammals, birds, fish, crabs, insects, snails, frogs, and occasionally carrion. They have been known to attack people, but are far more likely to flee at the sight of humans.
✅ Most countries in the American crocodile's range have passed protection laws, but unfortunately, few governments provide adequate enforcement.
