AFRICAN FLATDOGS

flat-dog-crocHere in Zambia and elsewhere in Africa, crocodiles are nicknamed “Flatdogs.”  You can see why.  They spend much of their lives lying flat on the mud bank of a pond or river.  Yet when on the hunt they can attack with astounding speed and surprise, leaping unseen from muddy water upon an unsuspecting target twenty feet away in an instant.  This happened to a young boy fishing along the Luangwa River near our encampment just days ago.  Africa is unforgiving of the unwary.  (Glimpses of Our Breathtaking World #142 Photo ©Jack Wheeler)
