Those black palps are the finest palps around. I've seen 1 (Wyoming???) other than the S.A. ones.
I trid to tell people how fine they were here years ago but unless you've actually had one...
I had one. She was just getting big(3 feet) it was winter and she was outside. During he night she decided to take a stroll, got cold and could'nt get back to her heated water.
When I found her she was limp. You know usually when they are really cold they are stiff like they are frozen.
But she was limp and I thought she was dead. I softly touched her eye and it moved. I took her in my house and raised her temp. slowly. She made it. I thought I was out of the woods but when spring rolled around she would't eat. She was always an amazing eater. So I gave her a little time. Nothing.
She would haul out of the water lay out in the sun, did everything she was suppose to do, except eat.
She was very stout so I knew she could go for a while. I did'nt want to stress her by trying to force feed her.
She finally died about 14 months later(after the cold). She never did eat. Now I would probably try and force feed her but back then...
Anyway she was gorgeous. I have 3 of the red ones and they're pretty to but I was partial to the black one.
And she wanted to be big an amazing eater.
My biggest trig was a 4.5 foot male and he was an absolute terror. I use to say pound for pound he was the scariest croc I had ever been around. And just trying to pen him his sharp neck scutes would cut your hands. He had a wicked growl and he was lightening quick. D.C.
