LILY CREEK LAGOON

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
While walking along the shores of Lily Creek Lagoon, I saw this freshwater crocodile basking in the sun.

“The freshwater crocodile (Crocodylus johnsoni or Crocodylus johnstoni), also known as the Australian freshwater crocodile, Johnston's crocodile or colloquially as freshie, is a species of reptile endemic to the northern regions of Australia. It is much smaller than the other Australian species, the saltwater crocodile, which is responsible for attacks on people.

Unlike their larger saltwater relatives, freshwater crocodiles are not known as man-eaters and rarely cause fatalities although they will bite in self-defense if cornered.” (Wikipedia)

The other versions are views on the lagoon.

Six fascinating studies, which support your informative dialogue so very well, however I think you saved the very best to last.
