Son and I went to the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve this morning, wonderful place with mangrove vegetation and lots of wildlife. We were on the lookout for estuarine crocodiles, and there were plenty of warning signs about them, but we didn't see any. We did a double take the first time we saw one of these, and we did encounter several of them sunbathing :-) For more on these huge lizards: Malayan water monitor lizards
