Dwarven dwarfs

Dwarf dwarves

Paul Bodnar wrote to me last year with great enthusiasm. These baby dwarf crocodiles were the reason why - captive bred in Florida. As you should know by now, dwarf crocodiles are the smallest of the crocodile species (although not the smallest crocodilian - that honour is reserved for the dwarf caiman, Paleosuchus palpebrosus), but you can't get much smaller than hatchling dwarf crocodiles! These little guys are about a million miles removed from Nile crocodiles ripping zebras in two, but that just reflects the general perceptions that most people have about crocodilians.

Take a few moments to learn about the African dwarf crocodile - you might be surprised!

FEBRUARY CAPTION CONTEST WINNER

So, who won the caption contest for February? Take a look at the photograph and see what you think. I was sent quite a few entries, but the following one made me chuckle the most:


Thanks to Sal Scibetta for the winning caption! Sal wins an authentic NT crocodile postcard. Many thanks to everyone else who entered, and look forward to the next caption contest.



Would you like to enter your best photograph as a potential Pic of the Month? Send it to me and I'll include the best here each month. Each year I run a competition where the best photograph each year is awarded an Ilfochrome print. The only criteria for submitting a photograph is this: it must capture the attention.
