In the dark shallows of the JardineRiver, we drift up on a crocodile, a 15-footer at least, almostas long as our boat. He waits; he has plenty of time. A saltie can stay submergedfor more than an hour, slowly pumping blood through its four-chamberedheart. We edge closer; we ease the boom-mounted camera in his direction. He could flip us in an instant,but he stays hidden, just waiting.
