We completed the first preliminary crocodile census of the Osa Pensinsula during a 10 day span in September. During the survey, we covered 2 major rivers, 1 lesser river, and 1 freshwater lagoon. Over 80 crocodiles were recorded, ranging from 35cm to 3m+. During nightime eyeshine surveys, few adults were seen, but many juveniles were observed including this 70cm speciment which was observed killing and eating a greater fishing bat! The images are vid-caps taken from digital video.
