Gharial or long-snouted crocodile, "gavialis gangeticus", found in rivers in Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Burma, India, and the Madras zoo where this one is. They eat fish, so no danger to you!

Hi Didi

Funny about the Madras Zoo :). Great perspective on this one! I think gharials are beautiful crocodiles and they are reputedly very gentle and shy crocodilians. Are you in Madras now? There are some nice nature places in Madras (believe it or not!), that might be worth a visit. Try Guindy National Park (behind the guindy zoo). The park contains remanants of native coastal vegetation and some interesting Fauna. The Theosophical Society in Adyar is a lovely patch of greenery along the estuary of the Adyar river.


amazing shot. It looks at me!
