Baby crocodiles





The beauty of nature, life and the various life forms that inhabit planet earth along with us, never ceases to amaze me. I am a big animal lover.However, reptiles are something that I prefer watching from a distance.My husband visited Sri Lanka recently (lucky guy--gets to travel a lot in his job) and had a chance to actually hold a baby crocodile!

I found this info about baby crocs interesting

When they are ready to hatch the baby crocodiles make a yapping sound from inside the eggs. This lets mum know her babies are ready to hatch so she digs them up and if they are having trouble getting out of their shells, she helps them by rolling the eggs inside her mouth and gently squeezing them until they hatch.

Mum may also carry her babies to water.
The baby crocodiles have to find insects to eat. Mum protects them for a month or two, but then they are completely on their own.

  1. Wow, I'm surprised to learn the mother sticks around and does help them for a little bit. Those are really cool pictures!

A hundred little flames--new novel from Preeti Shenoy.

Greetings from Birmingham. I type this with a stunning view of the boating canals in Birmingham.


 We had the cover launch of my new novel yesterday at Birmingham, as a part of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

The event was in association with DesiBlitz, which is an award winning web magazine, in UK  for British Asians.
They had carried alovely interview with me some days back. DO READ it.

The entire event of yesterday, was telecast live on Facebook. I have read from my new novel! :)

 I have also read from It's All In the Planets. If you watch the whole telecast, you will see how different the writing approach and the writing styles are in the two books.

I am grateful that the event was a roaring success and that people turned up in  large numbers.


Meanwhile at @LibraryofBham@preetishenoy signs many, many books after her event. #BLF17pic.twitter.com/Aw3ISbHA14 — Birmingham Lit Fest (@BhamLitFest) October 7, 2017


If you have missed the live telecast you can watch it on my author…

Are you guilty of this? #AHundredLittleFlames (post 4)

Hi there,
Hope you had a great Diwali!
For those who joined me late, I am doing a  hundred little blog posts to celebrate  my new book A Hundred Little Flames.

This means a new little blog post every day, till I reach a 100 :)
Today is day 4.

Sometimes, couples in love forget about everyone around them. They don't care what others think or feel, as they are so engrossed in each other, and their happiness. They also think that theirs is the greatest and the best love-story. They may not mean to do it. But they do so inadvertently.
Ayan finds it annoying.

Do you know any such couples? Has anyone you know acted that way?

Tell me in comments!
A new post tomorrow.
Love
Preeti
