Krueger National Park Day 2
Our safari continued with an early wake up call of our guide Steve, I think it was around 5:30. He explained us that most animals are active early in the morning and late at night so your best chances to see them are around those hours. Furthermore it is so hot during they day that you wouldn't want to walk around.
Where are the Elephants?
Well, no elephants yet but at least some footprints.
There is an elephant, well, not really but it is pretty big, and old. Steve told us that it lives for a 3000 years: First it grows for 1000 years, than it dies for 1000 years and after that it gives live to a lot of small animals on the ground for another 1000 years.
Our hiking group, oh, perhaps I didn't tell yet but we were hiking from the camp.

Is he checking us out? Hopefully not!
Still no big animals. The small ones were pretty interesting as well.
The web is 10 times or so stronger than steel. Well, depends what kind of steel but still pretty strong.
The top one is the skull of a crocodile.
The hole is where the brain of a crocodile sits. It is pretty difficult to hit that with a bullet, that's why it is hard to kill crocodiles.
Our hippo buddies!
After a long day we enjoyed the sunset.
... and later on the stars at the sky.
