Got up early and drove to Cooinda for a ranger talk and walk along the boardwalks over the wetlands. Was introduced to the very sharp taste of the Green Ants. The abdomen of these ants are light green and are extremely rich in Vitamin C. Spent the middle of the day bird watching by the edge of the wetlands and encountered a small Esturine (salt water) crocodile. At 4:30 we took a 2 hour cruise on the Yellow Water river and saw many birds including Sea Eagles, Jabirus, amoung others. Esturine crocodiles were everywhere too. The 'salty' is the largest crocodile in the world and one of two species dangerous to man, the other being the Nile Crocodile.
