Episode InformationDidier Noirot, a diver with Jacques Cousteau on over 5000 dives, along with South African photographer Roger Horrocks, notorious for his daring shark photography, team up to dive with the giant Nile crocodile - the last predator on earth which views humans as prey. Before meeting Roger, Didier battles overwhelming fear, poor visibility and diving partners too terrified to back them up. In the clear waters of the Okavango Delta, he had one fleeting encounter with a giant crocodile that disappeared into a huge underwater cave and it became his obsession to explore the mystery of the dragon’s lair. Roger joins Didier and the two encounter terrifying black outs, deadly hippos, and crocodiles who attempt to eat them. They then discover, deep in the darkest lair, a 14 foot crocodile that accepts their presence, allowing them to bring back footage that defies belief. These men use the strength of their beliefs and their intimate knowledge of animals to bridge the ancient interface between man and reptile.
