The color and texture of these great reptiles in Belize are amazing. I can't believe that the iguanas are a descendant of the prehistoric dinosaurs.

Can you imagine seeing one of these a hundred times larger. LOL

Saving Crocodiles with the Wildlife Emergency Response Team (WERT) and the American Crocodile Education Sanctuary (ACES) in Belize

Will Moreno's curator insight, May 23, 2013 8:24 PM

As a part of the Wildlife Emergency Response Team (WERT) we got the call to go help in securing and ensuring the safety of an 8.5 foot crocodile that found its way into Belize City by way of underground canals and culverts. 

 

Between Evan Sims from the American Crocodile Education Sanctuary (ACES), Gordon Kirkwood, Graeme Kirkwood and Will Moreno from the Wildlife Emergency Response Team (WERT) they managed to immobilize this magnificent yet powerful creature for the safety of the public and the safety of the crocodile. We are happy to report that the crocodile has been relocated to the Crodile Sanctuary for further evaluation and future release. 

 

If you would like to take a look at some of the amazing photographs from the capture please click on this link.

*****For the Record: It is illegal hold captive, torture or kill such an animal for any reason in Belize.*****

That is so nice that they don't just kill the crocodile instead they move it to a new home.  That must be so hard get a crocodile and not having it bite you or somthing.  That Wildlife Emergency Response Team would realy need to know what thare doing.  Knowing me I would have the hardest time to deal with wild animals like that.

Shark Tagging in Belize

Shark Tagging in Belize | Bird Watching & Conservation In Belize | Scoop.it

Being tasked with documenting Rachel Graham's shark tagging project at Lighthouse Atoll, Belize for the second year, I wanted to capture a closeup of how the tags look on the shark. Now remember, these sharks are first hooked, then restrained, measured and tagged, all the while struggling and thrashing to be free of lines and hands.
