But also mixed in with what I can only endearingly call the Central American version of the Andy Griffith Show. I'll give you an example. In the late 90's we were being driven to the Pacific coast of Costa Rica by one of my uncles. We stopped at a bridge over a languid river that looked like this:
I googled costa rican crocs, and these image came up. It looks like the same place. Now, that top croc has to be somewhere between 12 and 15 feet, head to toe, and as I stood by the bridge I noticed that there were no signs anywhere saying, DANGER! CROCODILES! or something like that. There was a car tire that lay next to one of the big fella that was dwarfed by the croc's skull.
This image does not surprise me in the least.
