Fun with a python before the tour

Saltwater croc

Swimming in the Adelaide River is suicidal

The crocs really do jump

A lot of birds fly over the Adelaide River

A lizard finds its way to John's hat

Another swimming hole, fed by waterfalls high above Kakadu

A dingo ate my baby!

Great Barrier Reef photos

Dive buddy Kevin with some massive coral

Giant clam

If only we had enough air to really go in here... stranger than fiction
