He said: “I came across this while crocodiling in Tabasco and I wanted to share it with you.

“When you are visiting areas where crocodiles are known to live, don’t only pay attention to the water.

“They can dig and create tunnels that connect to where they live both in and out of the water and are almost invisible to the eye.

“These underground tunnels help them hide underground while out of the water.”
