Maximo the Saltwater Crocodile

Maximo is the largest saltwater crocodile (and also animal in general) at the Alligator Farm in St Augustine, FL. He is 15 foot 3 inches and 1,250-pounds. *Measurements available on the site: www.alligatorfarm.com/maximo.h…
It was really neat, when we went, we got to see him jump in the air to catch food a few times. Unfortunately it was hard to get many good photos of him, since the glass around the enclosure is really grubby with finger marks and streaks, and also had the reflections of all the people surrounding the tank as well (feeding time is popular xD). Got a break with this photo, it seemed like a miracle I could get any picture clear enough haha. Snapped this right when he woke up and realized it was dinner time, he looked up here at the zookeepers up on the platform with his snacks.

Well this shot is indeed very clear!  I love the crisp, clear lines and spots visible on his jaws and the colours, the yellow and hints of blue.  What nice white teeth he has.
