This shot is actually photographed by Dennis Stewart. He's my dad and this photo is one of his most popular shots. The website to his work can be found here: http://www.naturesrealm.net/ The shot isn't of a Crocodile actually. It's of a Gharial!

Crocodiles have very good night vision, and are mostly nocturnal hunters. They use the disadvantage of most prey animals' poor nocturnal vision to their advantage. The light receptors in crocodilians’ eyes include cones and numerous rods, so it is assumed all crocodilians can see colors. Crocodiles have vertical-slit shaped pupils, similar to those of domestic cats. One explanation for the evolution of slit pupils is that they exclude light more effectively than a circular pupil, helping to protect the eyes during daylight. On the rear wall of the eye is a tapetum lucidum, which reflects incoming light back onto the retina, thus utilizing the small amount of light available at night to best advantage. In addition to the protection of the upper and lower eyelids, crocodiles have a nictitating membrane (sometimes called a "third eye-lid") that can be drawn over the eye from the inner corner while the lids are open. The eyeball surface is thus protected under the water while a certain degree of vision is still possible.

Looks a lot like a leopard gecko eye. (https://fthmb.tqn.com/bVhVKu541zVD0QXBiIJRSyZQZac=/960x0/filters:no_upscale()/GettyImages-528331928-58313b205f9b58d5b1eb08f9.jpg) Not too surprising I guess.

This is just like the album cover for Rodrigo y Gabriela's 'Tamacun'.
15 Feb 2018 04:24 - +8
Oh, THAT’S what they referenced for dragon eyes in LOTR
15 Feb 2018 04:38 - +6
Can't help looking for Sauron

The deep monkey brain part of my mind just let out a screech and climbed a tree.

15 Feb 2018 03:46 - +4
Looks like a Galaxy
15 Feb 2018 03:03 - +3
It reminds me of one of those pictures of a forest where the perspective is from someone laying on the ground
15 Feb 2018 04:05 - +3
Looking into this image makes me feel like I'm gazing into a prehistoric cosmos
15 Feb 2018 06:21 - +3

Looks like an old fissure in the middle of a dense jungle/forest.

15 Feb 2018 07:04 - +2
Ah, the Crocodile. A predator so deadly it hasn't evolved in 200 million years because it's the perfect killing machine.
15 Feb 2018 04:34 - +2
*It's the eye of the croc it's the beat of the fight*
15 Feb 2018 07:08 - +2

This will sound funny, but the vertical-slit pupil is actually great at viewing horizontally moving targets

The animal in the photo is actually a **Gharial**. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gharial They're beautiful crocodilians of the family Gavialidae, sharing an order with crocodiles and alligators: https://i.imgur.com/7r2lSnY.png Shot by Dennis Stewart, here's the link to the photo on his site: http://www.naturesrealm.net/Snakes-and-Reptiles/i-DQ3xbKG/A Thanks to his daughter, /u/Asteria535 for pointing this out.

Wow, i did not expect that they have white on the outside of the eye.
15 Feb 2018 05:29 - +1
Costume design gets better every year.
15 Feb 2018 04:59 - +1
This is simultaneously one of the most beautiful and terrifying things I've seen in a while
15 Feb 2018 05:32 - +1
That gaze is scaring the shite out of me.
15 Feb 2018 05:02 - +1
That crocodile has seen some shit
15 Feb 2018 05:41 - +1
So beautiful
15 Feb 2018 05:04 - +1
Always watching the ring!
15 Feb 2018 05:43 - +1
Actually this is the eye of an alligator. I know why look very similar but they're quite easy to tell apart if you know what to look for. The eye of an alligator will always see you later, while the eye of a crocodile will only see you after a while.
15 Feb 2018 03:36 - +1
Nice try Godzilla
15 Feb 2018 05:45 - +1
Maybe it's the 90's kid in me, but I see this image and I just think "SELL ME A MOVIE! I WANNA WATCH IT!"
15 Feb 2018 03:39 - +1
It's....it's....staring into my soul.
15 Feb 2018 05:49 - +1
This isn't in focus :( That's really bothering me
15 Feb 2018 03:48 - +1
He’s seen some shit
15 Feb 2018 05:52 - +1
A crocodile's eye looks like a bird's eye view of a crocodile swimming through a swamp.
15 Feb 2018 03:59 - +1
So that’s the eye..of DEATH?!? I’m sure humans kill more crocodiles than crocodiles kill humans.
15 Feb 2018 05:53 - +1
Reminds me of Quake exp cover Dissolution of Eternity
15 Feb 2018 04:00 - +1
Yo thats wild
15 Feb 2018 05:57 - +1
Alligator pal we call them gators in Merica
15 Feb 2018 04:06 - +1
If we had an iris like this (vertical instead of round) would it change our vision noticeably? Or is it simply a different way of controlling how much light our eyes receive?
15 Feb 2018 05:58 - +1
Hi
15 Feb 2018 04:08 - +1
I swear it’s moving. It’s got to be some kind of fear based response. The first 10-15 seconds looking at this the pupil kept dilating on me. Whoa.
15 Feb 2018 06:07 - +1
Beautiful. It almost feels like some kind of portal.
15 Feb 2018 04:42 - +1
Looking at this while listening to the piano version of My Heart Will Go On is beautiful
15 Feb 2018 06:08 - +1
This is just full CGI, crocodiles are fake news. I don’t believe in crocodiles.
