'Crocodiles believe in a relaxed, stress-free lifestyle. A lot of time is spent basking, or lying in the sun. This is an important activity for all reptiles. Basking raises the body temperature, while being in the water, brings it down. . Crocodiles look slow and lazy, and they usually are. But don't be fooled. They are like coiled springs and can move incredibly fast. In fact, the saltwater crocodile can even gallop, like a horse, for short distances. This makes them good hunters on land water. . Crocodile numbers are increasing in some parts of India, thanks to protection and conservation awareness. They are valuable components of aquatic ecosystems, being the top predator.' . . My visit to the Madras Crocodile Bank near #mahabalipuram turned out to be a pleasant surprise. Not a typical zoo, its efforts towards conservation of #crocodiles & reptiles are commendable. I learnt a lot about crocodile behaviour. And saw a huge variety - mugger, gharial and saltwater crocodiles from India but several from other parts of the world - Tomistoma, Spectacled caiman and Morelet's crocodile. . . These 2 kept looking at each other for the entire time I was there :-) . . #zestinatote #indiapics #indiagram #ifoundawesome #indiatravels #tamilnadutourism #wildlifeconservation #familytravel #travelwithkids #exploringtheworld #familytimes #familyblog #familyblogger #mytravels #traveltogether #kidstravel #travelkids #bringthekids #indiantraveller #indiantravelblogger #indianmoms #travelmama #outdoorfamilies #Showthemtheworld #ActiveFamily #FamilyAdventure #photographers_of_india #tamilnadudiaries
