A couple of shots of my pet caimans (Caiman crocodilus), the first few with this brand new camera... starting to fall in love with it... different beast from my old K100D.

p.s. Hello to all, kinda new around here!

Welcome to the forum, just exactly how big do these things get and should I be getting out of my chair... right now, ready to run?

a) I know what caimans are,
b) the eye-body proportion is all wrong for them to be concert-grande piano sized.

Well your knowledge way far exceeds mine on these beasts, think your an incognito Zoe Crocodile Dundee B.

Come on, if that thing was the length of my apartment (which is pretty tiny, but still...), it's eyes would be bigger than the front element of my Samyang 14. And I'm pretty sure that the only large creature with that kind of eyeball-body ratio is the giant squid. It's just simple logic. Large eyes --> small creature. Unless it's a squid. then you should run.

thank you for the welcome... they are only 5 years old, and only 90-100cm long, they are caimans - not gators or Nile crocodiles - a small species of crocodilians native of Central and South America. They are lovely reptiles BUT not for beginners or people with small kids

p.s. and yes the camera is great, to bad that in the last few weeks I didn't had the time to go out and enjoy it more

p.s.s

I would be worried that Mama Caiman might come after me in my sleep...
