20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Mzima Monster

When visiting the pure water Mzima Springs, which supplies much of the water to the eastern part of Kenya, this monster was resting with his mouth open to allow the water wash over his teeth. He looked very peaceful and well fed, but I wasn't going for a swim!
