Gharial Grin by Teh-Pandacoon Gharial Grin by Teh-Pandacoon
Gharial (Gavialis gangeticus)

Fun Fact!:Gharials are named for the bulbous structure on the tip of the snout in adult males. The word gharial is derived from the Hindi word, "ghara," which means, "mud pot."! :nod:

Conservation Note!: The species is considered to be one of the most critically threatened of all crocodilians, and was alarmingly close to extinction in the 1970s.

Taken at Fort Worth Zoo

Thank you so much! I love getting feedback, but sadly most of my watchers are of the quiet type. There are some more Crocodilian photos in the mix somewhere!
