Can you see the creature in this photo? He’s not completely hidden, but if you aren’t paying attention you may not notice him. I think he’s counting on that.

It’s the eyeball that gives him away. If he closed his eyes, I would have had to hunt for him.
I agree. And the eye is a little creepy to look at.
He’s certainly well camouflaged. 🙂
Like someone said, if his eye was closed it would be harder to notice him.
He blends in awfully well with his surroundings. Not something I’d want to stumble onto!
I didn’t really like wandering around much without a guide in some areas.
Yikes, what great camouflage. Have never been that close.
I was in a boat so I felt somewhat safe.
Looks like a smiling log :).
Beware of smiling logs!
Yep … that hunting pose best described as the moving log…
His jaw looks so strong…yikes!
Nice picture, TBM! Yes, he is deceptively hidden. I remember reading a Willard Price novel when I was in school in which a crocodile egg hatches and it first sees our boy hero, and thinks he is the mother. I don’t know whether that is how it really happens, but that day I realized that crocodiles might not be that bad after all 🙂
I think they are wonderful creatures as long as I’m not near them 🙂 It’s a little scary when you go on a boat ride and they say not to stick your hand outside of the boat or you may lose it. That makes an impression.
That is scary! But it is nice that we can take a boat ride in a place filled with crocodiles. I didn’t know that that was possible.
We were in a decent size boat, but I saw some men fishing in a much smaller boat and I think I would be terrified the entire time.
Eek – look at that eye!
A little creepy.
HE HE HE!
Watch out for the eyes … and the teeth!
No kidding! Great pic!
I see him! I don’t want to meet him!! I will just enjoy your picture!!!
I’m okay knowing this one from afar as well 🙂
I saw him straight away, his eye gave away the cover. Great shot. How close are you to him?
About 20 feet, but I was in a boat.
My, what creepy eyes you have, Mr. Crocodile.
When I was a kid we lived on a small canal and sometimes alligators would come into the canal. One used to enjoy sunning himself in our back yard. If you approached too quickly, he would dash into the water lickity split.
I have never seen a wild alligator–that would take some getting used to. I grew up around coyotes, deer, and rabbits–and the occasional rattlesnake.
The neighbors used to tell me: they’re more afraid of you than you are of them.
I’m not sure that’s true, but okay.
I’ve heard that about many predators and it only alleviates some of the fear.
Oh my! I can certainly see him in the photo, but I would certainly have to watch my step. I wouldn’t want to be his/her lunch.
