Looks pretty natural nestled in the flowers, right?

“Geocaching” is an activity where people seek out hidden treasures with the help of GPS. Strangers will hide a box or capsule and note its coordinates. Then, other people will attempt to find the hidden cache by locating it with GPS. It’s basically a modern day treasure hunt. Some people get really into it, which is so cool.
A Reddit user decided to participate in a geocaching hunt (in epic fashion) by making this cool hiding place for his capsule. Finding this would take some serious effort, but it’d be worth it.

He found a log to hide the treasure in.

Then, he included a hinge, so the log could open up.

That’s why he named it “Crocodile’s Head.” (Clever.)
