So the large crocodiles have good reason to be camera-shy.

It seemed that the team's best chance was away from people.

似乎摄制组最好的机会是在远离人类地方

On the tip-off of a large crocodile seen laying up on this lonely stretch of beach,

据说有人看到一条大鳄鱼躺在这条孤寂平坦的海滩上

Wade set up his camera hide one last time and the long wait began.

It's almost dawn. It's been a long, long, long, long night.

快到黎明时分了。这是个漫长的夜晚

Absolutely nothing. All I've seen is a dog and some crabs.

I can only figure that the crocodile knows I'm here.

我只能猜想鳄鱼知道我在这

He's a big, old, smart bugger, for sure,

它是一只大的,老练的,聪明的畜生

and if he's grown that big, it's obviously from being smart, and he's outsmarted me.

它长了这么大,绝对聪明,比我聪明

Yet it was at dawn, after a three-day vigil,

that an impressive, three-metre crocodile finally appeared.

In the end, Wade only managed to record a few minutes of footage of these camera-shy giants.

最后,维德只拍到几分钟这些怕羞巨鳄的影片

But these images were proof of the existence of large saltwater crocodiles in the Solomons
