Jaws of death! by TarJakArt Jaws of death! by TarJakArt
Estaurine or Saltwater Crocodile (Crocodylus porosus), in attack mode.  Adelaide River, Northern Territory, Australia.  This 4.5m male estuarine crocodile was attracted by our tour guide with a chicken carcass and it showed its jaws and teeth to good effect.

The tour was on a boat on the Adelaide River east of Darwin in Australia's Northern Territory. All the crocodiles in this river are wild and this was only one of around 5 similar sized animals we saw in a stretch of only a few kilometres of our launch point down river. Being on the tour we were able to get within only a few metres of these amazing predators.

a remarkable "jaws of death" picture ! You caught it at a very good angle, giving a very powerful impact - a blind, greedy maw violently surging.

You can see how quickly this animal reacted by the movement of the water. Great shot :clap:

The jaw's very nicely focused (especially for 1/50s)
