There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

@johnny rex, largest mugger ever recorded measured 5.7 metres. And, amongst all crocodilians, they have the widest skull to size ratio. The largest muggers are indeed very impressive.

A lioness (Not sure, may it is a sub adult ) was killed by Crocodile. I don't know when this image was taken (May be last year), But it is one of the rare incident in the wild.
