One particular croc managed to scale a 4ft fence, before gracefully (sort of) diving down into a lake.
Photographer Ram Kishan saw her casually climbing the metal fence in Boondi in Rajasthan, northern India.
The 30-year-old didn’t have his camera on him, but he managed to take a few photos on his smartphone.
‘I arrived at the spot late in the evening and there was this crocodile,’ he said. ‘I clicked one photograph just like that, but when I noticed that it was moving towards the lake, I stayed back to see what would happen.
‘The light was very low so I could only capture a few images. I really missed my camera at that moment.’
People living nearby told Ram the croc had been hanging out on land near the lake for a few days, and that it looked like she was searching for a safe place to lay eggs.
Apparently, the 250lb croc is actually an expecting mother.
