Water gate on left

Nearer the bridge, in front, was the entrance of a water gate. The gate would be open to release water from the adjacent pond in/out of the river. In front of this gate is the favourite spot for a crocodile. If oftens appeared when the tide is just coming in. Behind this gate resides another crocodile.

Most of the ponds here were cut from the natural surroundings, mostly mangrove swamps, and reconstructed for prawn breeding and rearing ponds.
