yellowbean A few years ago, I went birding with my bestfriend and her family in the Agusan Marsh, in southern Philippines. I asked P at that time whether there were any croc sightings in the area and she answered, "Naaah..." ever so nonchalantlyA couple of years later, Lolong, a 20-ft crocodile was captured. He weighed just a little over a ton! Its mate, believed to be larger and longer, still lurks these waters In retrospect, I think @pestacio 's "naaah" was more of an "umm...", and we had laughed our butts off at our ignorance.

The sad news is that Lolong died in captivity last February. Cause of death was said to be pneumonia and cardiac arrest. But I think he died of a broken heart. He was 50.

The waterscape above is home to a tribe called Manobo and various wild animals, including saltwater crocodiles. The scene, shot at daybreak just as the fog was lifting, pales in comparison to the enchanting natural beauty that I was so lucky to behold that day. #mothernaturerocks #oldphotos because #workdecidestocoopmein
