Jaluco Cocodrilo moved to La Manzanilla

This one was found in the upper canals of Laguna del Tules which reach into Jaluco and out of concern for children it was moved by Proteccion Civil to the Cocodrilo sanctuary in La Manzanilla. We do see Cocodrilos along the road to Pinal Villa during the rainy season in the mini-lagoons that form there but usually much smaller and younger.

Wow! A good-sized croc. I am not certain we have any that large in our pond in Villa Obregon.

Yikes! That is one BIG REPTILE!

The canals that reach into Jaluco are extensions of your lagoon (del Tules)

quite a few near that size in the La Manzanilla lagoon

Double yikes! My barber told me there were some big crocs in Jaluco. He was correct.

Geez, that guy is BIG - Steve better stay out of his lagoon. Who knows what lurks in those murky depths! No wonder there was a dead dog.......YUK

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
