Croc Farm, Near the Equator on Lake Victoria, December 28, 2015

The latitude at the equator truly is 0-


Tilapia and catfish mongering along the road-


Chicken for supper??


Ankole cattle-


Entering the Croc Camp, we were warned-


And-


The largest crocodile at Croc Camp weighs 500-700 kg and is 67 years old-


They have 290,000 crocs and sell them when they are 3-5 years old for their skin and meat-




This fellow must have been in a fight because he's lost some of his snout-


Their feet and skin are very interesting-


Feeding days are Monday and Thursday.  They are given dead chicks that smelled horrible-


As the employee was handing me the croc, I was a bit nervous-


Then it got better-


Until I went to give him back and-


He snapped again!


I wasn't bitten but I was concerned!

We're camping on Lake Victoria-


And heading to Jinja for 4 days of water fun and relaxation!

It rained a lot during the night and this morning, flooding through the patio doors into the living room!  At 10:30, we headed to Essauouira...
