It has evolved for over 200 million years. Overcome and adapted to environmental changes countless times and been on this planet millions of years longer than us. Now we finally meet. I feel slightly nervous. My guide is right behind me and just whispered, “it is not the ones you see that are dangerous”, but I only see one and it is just a few feet in front of me in the river. It is about 11 feet long and slowly moving towards me. My tripod sinks a few inches into the mud on the river bank and I can feel my feet slide. Nervous because any second now I need to move back fast – I just need one more shot. Closer. I can see he curls the tail and gently grab the bottom with its front feet. It is time to go.
