Is the crocodile a Nile crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus)?

My impression was that both were zoo/pet photos, which I imagine is why they have been ignored.

Most likely, I agree. But don't forget the West African Crocodile (Crocodylus suchus). I'm not sure how this species could be identified from such a photo (no pun intended). Seems that the crocodile species the Ancient Egyptians adored was this one (because it was so much more docile) rather than the Nile croc. Fascinating stuff.

Thanks for the help.

Maybe you can help me with a different reptile from the same area. I posted the photo here. https://www.birdforum.net/showthread.php?t=368908

What about the Pogona (?). I thought it was easy to identify given the better quality of the image
