Lovely picture which deserves a 10. They look different to the crocs I have seen, not that Ive seen many, mainly the Cauvery river crocs and the old boys at our Bombay zoo! This one in your pic seems to have a narrow snout and tail, much narrower than the crocs Ive seen. But Im sure that their BITE is as lethal!

Thanks all of your for your generous rating. @Snonymous, Yes they are called Gharials different from Mugger or Crocodlies. Ronak.

Okay, now I have understood the difference. I thought mugger and gharial were the same. They obviously are not.
