The swamp was covered with vegetation and this made it almost impossible to get a pinpointed view of the giant reptiles making all of the noise. Then he rose, the mighty king himself, making his grand entrance top side as he broke his cover rising through the dense vegetation of the swamp. This show of dominance and territorial defiance continued for a half hour before he sank back to the depth and was not to be seen again.
