Welcome to Day 10 of the A-Z Blogging Challenge. My theme is:
Extract from an article I wrote about Australia’s Northern Territory published in an English language newspaper in Spain:
The Mary River Wetlands abound with birdlife and crocodiles. We took a boat ride.
Slim snouted freshwater crocodiles (freshies) grow up to 3 metres long and won’t attack if undisturbed. Estuarine or saltwater crocodiles (salties) can grow up to 6 metres long. These opportunistic hunters can and will grab anything that moves. You don’t mess with salties.
Amongst a welter of fascinating birds, the huge black necked stork, or Jabiru, reigns supreme. At 130 cms tall this magnificent bird stalked like a statesman through carpets of Sacred Water Lilies while Little Corellas squawked overhead.
See you tomorrow – I’m heading north. Can you guess where and what the next animal will be?
