Family startled by large sunning crocodile along Bacalar lagoon

Bacalar, Q. R. — A sunbathing crocodile along a shore area of the Laguna de los 7 Colores in Bacalar caused a bit of a stir. However, not everyone noticed the large reptile.

On Sunday, people visiting the popular lagoon happened upon the three-meter long crocodile who seemed to be enjoying the sunny day. He was videoed at the water’s edge while a large heron shared his space.

While crocodiles are known to the area, they are still a surprise when spotted. While a passing family videoed the reptile, a group of five swimmers in the background remained completely unaware of its presence.

After a few moments of videoing, the crocodile changed direction and headed off.
