Tárcoles River Expedition — Part 3


Finger Eatin' Good!

The above picture should give a at least an indication of just how big these American crocodiles get along the Tárcoles River!  This fellow was huge!  But he was also very old and pretty slow, thank goodness.  On Friday you’ll see a video of him being hand-fed, and even kissed on the snout.

Here, even the termite nests are incredible:

You’ve already had a sampling of the great birding available to visitors of the Tárcoles River jungle, and here’s a shot of some pterodactyl-looking frigatebirds in flight:

The vegetation along the Tárcoles River is yet another photographic draw.  There are mangroves:

Of course the river itself holds a lot of interest for the lens, as well:
