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.

@Rishi
The one I am holding is a lot smaller than the largest one in Museum Collections in Venezuela, this one comes from a specimen 3,65 meters long and the largest one comes from a very big male it measures 68,8 cent long, almost as long as the one of Lolong the largest Saltwater Crocodile captured that measure 70 cent long, Lolong measured  6,17 meters long
