... the guy was telling her to lower it, I found it all very funny, eventually she got the meat right in front of the crocs face and SNAP!!! The croc bit on the peg and broke it and took the meat, Bobbie screamed as it happened then felt bad the peg broke, but the guy laughed and seemed ok with it.

The next day we visited the Sumidero Canyon, eventually, as we had to wait 2 hours until there were enough people to fill a boat. The Canyon can only be seen by boat but it was worth the wait. It is impossible to take a photograph that does it ...
