Count if you can! How many crocodiles do you see?

Sep 02, 2020 21:11 IST

How many crocodiles are too many? Well, we would forgive you for taking several closer looks at this photograph by Dhritiman Mukherjee. The photograph shows the critically-endangered gharial crocodile, with its back completely covered by its young. There could easily be hundreds of baby crocodiles in this picture. The photograph was clicked in India's National Chambal Sanctuary and is highly commended in this year's Wildlife Photographer of the Year (WPY) competition. Today,approximately only 1,000 mature gharial crocodiles are left and three-quarters of these are concentrated in the Uttar Pradesh sanctuary.
