Croc Hunters
Photograph by Steve Winter

Conservationists and crocodile experts glide on pole boats through the Ciénaga de Zapata Biosphere Reserve. The group was on a two-week expedition in the swamp to capture, tag, and measure Cuban crocodiles. These fierce and endangered reptiles can leap straight out of the water to strike prey hovering overhead in trees.
