Yes, it is true! This was the very first coin that I completed to sell. Can't believe I have been painting coins now for 10 years. In honor of that, I just posted it in a second color. The original opalescent turquoise and now a deep translucent blue.
Trivia about Crocodiles: They can close their ears!
Most of us know crocodiles spend a lot of time in the water with just their heads peeking out. Their eyes are located high on their heads but their ears are a bit lower and so are underwater. They have special flaps that cover their ears and that keeps them dry. On land, they can open the ear flaps to hear better.
