Happy world crocodile day and more importantly happy birthday to the late great Steve Irwin! It's no secret that he was a huge inspiration of mine and countless others who work with animals every day. His passion, his enthusiasm and his love for wildlife will forever be unmatched. He taught the world to love all wildlife and showed us that every animal,no matter how scary or dangerous, served a purpose on this planet and that we need to protect them. He devoted his life to protecting wildlife and never strayed from his mission. His legacy will live on forever and the people and wildlife of this world sure do miss him.

Happy World Crocodile day from these amazing crocs! Crocodiles play an important role in an environment, usually as an apex predator. Eating large mammalian prey and digesting bone, hoof and horn. Many of the worlds crocodilians are in desperate shape, the Orinoco, Philippine and the Siamese come to mind, Crocodilians often fall short in conservation, they aren’t cuddly, affectionate. Without an apex predator role that crocodiles play, the ecosystem would collapse, they’ve lived on the planet for millions of years, we at least owe it to them, to understand their plight and stand up for the conservational battle to save the Crocodile. Morelets Crocodile, West African Crocodile, Nile Crocodile, Siamese Crocodile, American Crocodile, Morelets Crocodile, Orinoco Crocodile (Juvenile). #conservation #education #crocodiles #orinococrocodile #westafricancrocodile #siamesecrocodile #moreletscrocodile #americancrocodile #nilecrocodile #savethegophertortoise #savetheeverglades #savethephilippinemonitors

Not widely known, ancient civilizations living among crocodiles in the Americas revered these creatures for their place in creation (with reverance, came knowledge to coexist with crocodiles). Cipactli was a crocodile god (with some fish features) of the Aztec world. Cipactli (which means "old crocodile" in Nahuatl), was created by the 4 principal gods and is seen as the creator of the cosmos, in which Earth laid or was created by the back of Cipactli. No extensamente conocido, antiguas civilizaciones viviendo entre cocodrilos en las Americas veneran estas criaturas para su lugar en creación (con reverancia, viene conocimiento para coexistir con cocodrilos). Cipactli fue un dios cocodrilo (con algunas características de pez) del mundo Aztec. Cipactli (quiere decir "cocodrilo antiguo en Nahuatl) fue creado por los cuatro dios principales y se considera como creador de los cosmos, en lo cual la Tierra se acosta o fue creado por la espalda de Cipactli. #aztec #aztecgod #cocodrilo

Morelet's Crocodile. Our @eagleeyetours group enjoyed lots of wildlife in Tikal National Park, Guatemala this weekend ... not "just" the birds. This croc was working on a large turtle, which eventually met it's demise when we heard a loud crack. . . #birdtherock #offtherock #naturerocks #eagleeyetours #nature #nature brilliance #nature perfection #nature sultans #macroworld tr #exclusive wildlife #nature èhippys #fifyshades of nature #pocket allnature #picturetokeep nature #bestnatureshots #wildlife perfection #show us nature #ip connect #wildlife in bl #eye for earth #inspirenaturenow #efe nature or nothing #addictedto nature #moreletscrocodile

There is nothing I’m more passionate about other then rescuing animals and my daughter😍 love ya savanna! Wildlife warrior till I die. My love for wildlife started when I was 3 years of age, my father captured me a green snake from the back yard. That triggered my passion and I haven’t stopped since. Mistreated, abused, neglected, near death, anything! I will do what i can to rescue any animal from a mouse to an elephant. One day I will have a zoo with rescues from all over our great country. 🤘🏼 wildlife warriors 🤘🏼 #merica #wildlifewarriors #wildlifeconservation #savingwildlife #zoo #moreletscrocodile #lovemybabies #passion #determination #alpha #🤘🏼

Three years ago I truly began my dream... I founded the Crocodile Research Coalition, and organization that promotes conservation and management of crocodilians and their habitat through research, community involvement and capacity building. It is insane how fast our organization has grown and the amount of accomplishments we made this past year, such as attaching the first iridium satellite tracker on an American croc in Belize and in this region. I’m thankful for all the Yoda’s in my life who have helped me reach successfully to this point. #wildlifeconservation #crocodiles #stem #translationalecology #crocodileconservation #crocodylus #americancrocodile #moreletscrocodile #crocodylusmoreletii #crocodylusacutus #cocodrilo #cocodriloamericano #cocodrilodepantano #womeninscience #womanscientist #workingmomlife #workingmom #workingmomstyle #womeninconservation #crocwise #wildlifemanagement #belize #placenciabelize #satellitetracking #satellitetracker #momatwork

Today we celebrate 3 years of the CRC.  From finsihing up the countrywide Morelet's crocodile population survey (in which we observed 500 individuals just this year), to reaching our goal of conducting educational outreach in every district to Belize, and deploying the 1st iridium satellite tracker on an American croc in country (and to our knowledge the Central American and Caribbean region!), this past year was nothing but a success.  Thank you to all of our supporters, and CRC looks forward to 2019 as we further our research, management and educational outreach efforts, in addition to expanding our rehabilitation and wildlife triage program!

Hoy, celebramos 3 años de CRC. Desde terminando la encuesta población nacional de Cocodrilo de Pantano (observamos 500 individuos este año pasado), a alcanzar nuesro gol de llevar a cabo divulgación educative en cada distrito en Belice, y sujetando el primer rastreador satelite en un Cocodrilo Americano en el país (¡y a nuestro conocimiento el primer en America Central y el Caribe!), este año pasado fue un éxito. Gracias a todos nuestros partidarios, y CRC está emocionado por 2019 como fomentamos y crecemos nuestros esfuerzos de investigación, manejo y divulgación educative, ¡además de expandir nuestro programa de rehabilitación y triage de la vida silvestre!

Meet Jeff Jr., another croc resident of the Maya Beach area on Placencia Peninsula. Luckily for this 1m Morelet’s Crocodile, his neighbors are 2 of CRC’s Junior Croc Experts. And what have they observed Jeff Jr. doing? Along with their mom, our junior croc experts have observed him hunting swallows that come to the water (actually leaping after the birds- he has missed every time), and he loves sunbathing/basking in the late afternoon. But don’t get too close! Jeff Jr. is scared of people, and likes his own space. If you get too close he’ll jump in the water. We look forward to more observations of Jeff Jr. from our youngest Citizen Scientists!

Dejanos presentarle Jeff Jr, otro residente cocodrilo de Maya Beach en la peninsula de Placencia. Afortunadamente por este 1m de Cocodrilo de Pantano, sus vecinos son 2 de nuestros expertos jovenes de Cocodrilos de CRC. ¿Y lo que han observando Jeff Jr. haciendo? Con su mamá, nuestros expertos jovenes de cocodrilos le han observando cazar golodrinas que vienen al agua (Jeff Jr. salta hasta a los pájaros; se ha perdido cada vez), y él le encanta tomando el sol en la tarde. ¡Pero no te acerques demasiado! Jeff Jr. tiene miedo de la gente, y le gusta su propio espacio. Si te acerques demasiado, saltará en el agua. ¡Esperamos que más observaciones de Jeff Jr. de nuestros científicos de ciudadanos más jovenes!

Unlike our eyes which are firmly bolted in place, crocs can sink their eyes into their skull to protect them when attacking prey or fighting with on another.

During the day, as seen if you look closly into the dark colored eye of this Morelet's Crocodile, the pupil is closed up to a tiny vertical slit, whereas at night it will be fully dilated, taking up nearly the entire eye.

Crocs have 3 eyelids on each eye; 2 blackout eyelids from top and bottom, and a 3rd translucent eyelid that goes across the eye from front to back called a nictitating membrane. Nictitating membranes protect a crocodile's eyes while underwater and vary in clarity from relatively clear with a little marbling, to cloudy with minimal or zero vision.

Aemon, a 2m Morelet's crocodile, came under CRC's rehab after being rescued from Corozal District. He was found emaciated and had severe damage to his eyes. Unfortunately this croc has lost vision in one eye, with poor eyesight in the other- his lack of vision likely led to his emaciation as crocs still use a bit of their vision for hunting. In 2 months, Aemon has almost doubled in weight with assisting feeding, and is already showing the signs of a good student in our target training program.

Aemon, un Cocodrilo de Patano que mide 2m, entra el programa de rehabilitación de CRC después su rescate de Distrito de Corozal.  Él fue encontrado demacrado y tuvo daños severos a sus ojos. Desafortunadamente, este cocodrilo se ha perdido su visión en un ojo, y tiene visión deficiente en el otro- su carencia de visión probablemente llevó a su emaciación como cocodrilos todavía utilizar su visión para cazar. En 2 meses, Aemon casi se ha duplicado en peso con la ayuda de alimentando, y ya mostrando las señales de un buen estudiante en nuestro programa de entrenamiento.
