  1. Hi - nice photos!!
    Did you see any crocodiles on Wetar (Danau Tihu (Tihu Lake))?
    I'm interested in what species they are - analagous to the freshwater crocs in northern Australia (narrow snout) or descendants of stranded saltwater (estuarine) crocs.
    Best regards and I enjoy your photos immensely.
