Never smile at a Costa Rican crocodile

Tortuguero in Costa Rica is a paradise for those hoping to see diverse wildlife. It is located in a remote area accessible only by boat or plane. It gets so much rain here that there are numerous interlocking canals. We took a boat ride along some of them and came across this crocodile lurking close to the shoreline.
