If he were alive today, can you imagine what Steve Irwin would say about the WA shark cull, and the destruction of the Great Barrier Reef?

Anonymous asked: do you have any pictures of the parents to the baby caimans

No I don’t. The parents are in a different park but as that park didn’t have space for these babies, we took them in instead.

wild-earth asked: I met Steve Irwin when I was a kid. Such a nice guy :)

One of the things I always wanted to do was to meet him and thank him for doing what he did. It was because of him I got interested in crocs, so in a way, I owe my life and future to him. It upsets me that I’ll never be able to shake his hand and thank him for that. 
However, by continuing his work in my own way, I know his spirit will be with me ;3

The development of a baby crocodile in the womb.
DID YOU KNOW: Crocodiles have very sensitive skin. Crocodile skin reveals sensors that no other vertebrate has! The crocodile boasts a wide variety of multisensory microorgans that detect chemical, thermal, & mechanical changes in their environment. These many sensors are grouped together in organs called Dome Pressure Receptors. These domes are built into the crocodile’s armor-like skin - protecting & detecting.

Pretty sure they mean in the egg, as crocodiles do not give birth to live young. Interesting image all the same.

Apologies yet again for my lack of posting. Life’s pretty hectic for me right now. In the hopes of forgiveness I present you all with a photo of 9 of our baby caimans ;3

Peter Watson, 73, runs the huge reptile sanctuary, Crocodile Creek, in Natal, South Africa. 
He is one of the best specialists in the world but this video shows that no matter how many years of experience you have, trying to get a mother crocodile away from her eggs is always dangerous. 
Fortunately his injuries were minor, all things considered. I personally wish him a speedy recovery, as does everyone at the Crocodile Park Torremolinos as he helped us get our feet on the ground many years ago. (Yes, the pun was intended). 

WOOOO! Just reached my first milestone of 100 followers! A big thank you to you all for following my humble blog and to all those who like/reblog my posts to help spread my love for crocodiles across the world! We should celebrate with something but I’m not sure what, any ideas? ^^
