AFROTROPICAL Freshwater
reptiles

The reptiles of the African freshwater wetlands...

Family Crocodylidae

Crocodylus niloticus, 'Nile Crocodile' (Mburo Lake, Uganda), spend much of their time semi-submerged in the water, from where they hunt their prey .

To warm up their body, they bask near the water's edge.

Thinking of travelling again after everything settles down? The first expedition I am booked to work on after the virus is Micronesia, New Guinea & Indonesia in 2021 with Silversea. Meanwhile I am giving a lecture on the Sunshine Coast (Australia) on the "Sounds of suburban south-east Queensland".
