Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary, Karnataka

This stop was crazy. There were crocodiles – real big crocs- lazying in the water. It was scary – almost stopped my heart for a bit, for more than a bit. I was tempted, too tempted to touch them.

This one above has a foot missing. Quite sad. Just to let you know I have not zoomed in in the above picture. The boatman took us close enough to take these. He told us they are friendly though not tamed and have not attacked any one till date.
