This crocodile-shaped, low-lying rock can be seen approximately 150m offshore between Dwejra Point and Fungus Rock. Commencing from the sheltered side of the rock, this dive takes you westerly (towards the left of the rock) where a natural amphitheatre with near-vertical sides drops towards deeper water, reaching a steep wall directly below the seaward side of the rock. Continuing around to the right, there are a number of deep fissures inhabited by a variety of marine creatures. The bottom of the wall is littered with huge boulders, an excellent refuge for the many groupers in this area. The marine life here is prolific with damselfish, bogue, and salema dominating, while, as well as groupers, barracuda, tuna, dentex and amberjack are a common sight.
