[edit] Information

Student Tara Shine told yesterday how she became a real-life Indiana Jones when she went hunting a"lost" colony of Crocodiles, thought to have died out when the pharaohs disappeared. The intrepid 28-year-old tracked down the elusive reptiles in the remote African country of Mauritania, where experts said they could not exist. Previously unknown exept by local tribespeople, the creatures live in burrows and caves throughout the dry season and periods of drought. Natives had been protecting the crocodiles for centuries, as supertition says their extinction would lead to already scarce water supplies completely dry up.

PhD student Tara built her own "tank-cam" to find out where the crocs survive the desert drought and brought back remarkable images of the reptiles living in the middle of a desert. Now, her two-and-a-half year mission will be told in this "Lost Crocodiles of the Pharaohs".
