#168 Cenotes and Crocs

This big guy was behind a fence. I was looking and looking for a crocodile and here he was right under my nose. When I saw him, I jumped back about 6' and yelped.
Here he is from a distance with a smaller one in the water.

Ah, the cenotes. Cold, fresh underground water.

At first, Ray braved the cenote alone because none of us wanted to get into that "freezing" water. After taking several photos of him in the caves, I decided he couldn't have all the fun so I got in too. It's hard to describe it. We swam into huge caves with bats, stalignites or stalignites... (what do I know?) and swallows darting everywhere. Fish swimming right along with us in total peace. We didn't want to get out.
