Marty’s photo of the day #2612: It’s “Animals A thru Z Month.” Each day in August, I will post an animal I’ve photographed—somewhere in the world—in alphabetical order. The name of every animal must start with the letter, and no letters will be skipped. Yes, I have photographed an animal with a name that begins with an X and all of the other tough letters.
A is for American Crocodile. According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN), American crocodiles are a “vulnerable species.” I photographed this beauty on the Turneffe Islands of Belize, where the species still has a stronghold.
