A snoozing saltie and his little buddy

David captured this image of a baby saltwater crocodile (Crocodylus porosus) and his little companion in the Daintree River, North Queensland.

Saltwater crocodiles are the largest of all living reptiles, with males growing to be above six metres long. They are opportunistic predators with most prey being ambushed, then drowned or swallowed whole. While green ants are not on the menu, baby crocs have been known to munch on other insects!
