"The Song of the Gharial", originally uploaded by EcoSnake.

Romulus Whitaker is the founder of the Madras Crocodile Bank in India and one of the world’s foremost authorities on the Gharial (Gavialis gangeticus), the fish eating crocodilian of India. His talk at the International Herpetological Symposium banquet documented the sad fact that there are only 200 breeding adults of these great reptiles left in two river basins in India and Nepal. Gharials, like the alligators and crocodiles have been on the earth in their present forms for about 200 million years. Click here for the Gharial Conservation Alliance webpage: gharials.org/.
