|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The Chinese Crocodile gets its name from the appearance of its tail, which has an enlarged pair of scales running most of its length, similar to the tail of a crocodile. It inhabits only one mountainous province of China, where it lives in and around clear pools of slow-moving, shallow water.|
Shot was taken using the camera's macro setting while it was pressed up against the glass. Post processing included contrast and levels adjustments, resizing, and USM.

An ugly dude, well pgotographed, and through glass! Well done. And now I will have to go and do some research, I thought I knew all the croc species. I love the toothy grin and the small hand.
Points all gone.
Great shot very good angle and details.
