Crocodile Skin, Belize (Trippy Travel Photo 33)


I took this photo of a crocodile skin when I was in Belize on a tour, I believe. I didn’t get this close, of course, but shot it from a distance using the highest number of megapixels possible. I then cropped it.

People guessed what this was quite easily, but didn’t figure out where I took the photo.

These are the steps they took to play the game.

1. Look at the photo/study the details


2. Guess what it is and where I was when I took the photo. Check out the clues.

Clue: quite a few tourists have seen it.

Note: To be declared the winner, you’ll need to provide a solid explanation re: why you believe your answer is correct.

3. Check Back Later!

–Post your guesses here in the Comments Section (tweets and FB comments don’t count–sorry)

–Keep checking and guessing as the guessing gets good…

–See who won…maybe it will be you!

The Prize?

A mention of your name and a link to your site from within this post.

And the Winner Is…

No one. :) People came close, but didn’t go all the way with their guessing.

The Answer:

Crocodile skin.

I took the photo of the croc while in Belize. From a distance, of course. :)

Can’t get enough?

      Ha ha–had to make it easy. Too many complainers out there (just kidding).

      You’re right re: the croc, but you’ll need to state the country. If not, someone else will win. #Robert’slostthiswaybefore #shameisn’tit

    It’s an alligator/crocodile type of animal and you were in Mexico!

      Yes to croc and no to Mexico. You’re pretty warm in terms of location, however. :)

    OK, so it’s a crocodile, Central America. There are a bunch of countries in that part of the World, so let me have a stab… Costa Rica. I looked on a map and it does have some coastal bay features on the west coast.

      Nope–not Costa Rica.

    I note that you didn’t say “Getting really hot”, so that must mean it isn’t an adjacent country…


    Hence, I believe this croc lives in Guatemala!

      Hi, Jamie. Great guess! :) Definitely a croc, but not quite so far away. Try again? :)

      Hi, Ryan. No–sorry, not Florida. It’s been narrowed down to Central America. If you check recent comments, you’ll see that another player, Robert, has guessed almost every country and lost. So…if you want to win, it would be easy via process of elimination. :)

      This is SO funny. I think you need to make a list of all of the countries in Central America and see what you’ve missed. If not, Jeruen will win at the last minute.

      New game coming soon, btw. :)

    Hmm… Well I have been dodging Belize because I don’t recall you ever going there, but, I am so desperate to win over Jeruen that I’ll say anything now…

    Beli… No! Wait! I’m changing my mind…

      You won, then lost. WTF??

      Yeah, it’s Belize. But I can’t declare you the winner because you guessed too many times and you guessed it, but then changed it. That’s in the fine print, btw. :)

    Oh no… Lisa, pllleeeaaassse… let me win this one. Do you know how guilty you will feel and for how long? It will truly ease your mind to grant me the win.
