I believe this photo shows the Marsh or Mugger Crocodile. I saw some on the River Cauvery in Karnataka and could not believe that the one seen basking on the river bank was real. They lie with jaws agape and the inside of their mouths appears to be dry which made me think it was stuffed and placed there to fool tourists, but apparently it was the real thing. Perhaps, though, it’s wise for tourists in India to be a little suspicious when looking a gift horse in the mouth…..
