Northern Nomadic Trail - Crocodile at Uaso river
Crocodiles are typical inhabitants of Uaso river. They are able to survive through dry spells by burying themselves in the mud. During the hottest hours of the day they're used to keep their mouths wide open to cool themselves down. Since their digestive system can handle rotting meat from old carcasses, they are very effective at waste disposal (unlike many other carnivores which require fresh meat).
