Tanzania 2004

This crocodile on a sandbank in the Grumeti river is by far the biggest and fattest one I have ever seen in my life. It seems that the resident crocodiles here only eat in the migration season when floods of wildebeests and zebras cross the river on their way to the fresh grass on the Serengeti-plains after the first rains in the long rain season. These Nile crocodiles hardly have to move to eat as many prey as they can consume.
