I was saying on an earlier post, everyone who has become bored with documentatires should wake an effort to watch this one its called "Into the dragons lair".
Diving with BIG Nile Crocs in the Okovango under the huge papyrus beds is fairly gnarly.

We used a Canon 7D with an Ikalite housing to take the pic. And no the crocs here have not been aggressive toward us so far.
