OMG!

I wonder which one is alpha?

So sweet! Have you heard about the Costa Rican man who nursed a dying crocodile back to health and ended up with a 980-lb. friend for life?

That's really cool, Laura. Thanks for posting it.

Wow Dean, that's an incredible story.

But he only charges a few dollars to watch the breathtaking crocodile show, claiming he does not want to cash in on Pocho.

He says: "He's my friend, I don't want to treat him like a slave or exploit him.

"I am happy because I rescued him and he is happy with me because he has everything he needs."


Thanks for the link.

I had no idea crocodiles were that big

L-girl said...

Me neither!

We saw a lot of alligators in a South Lousiana bayou a long time ago, but they were much smaller. Still impressive and scary! But much smaller.

What a sweet story. The wonder of animals---I never cease to be amazed.

I never cease to be amazed.

That's pretty much what I said.

At the end it looks like the elephant is rubbing the dog's belly with his foot. ?!?!?!!!?

Amy said...

Yes, it is the elephant rubbing the dog's stomach with her "paw." We do that with our dog, but our feet are not anywhere near as big!

Croc Guy: "After a decade I started to work with him."

And elephants are incredibly powerful. An elephant could kill a dog just by putting its foot down. Yet that elephant is being so gentle.

I was especially touched by the elephant waiting outside the dog's window while she was sick.

I guess it takes a long time to build trust with a crocodile!

redsock said...

We thought B took a long time with someone new!

L-girl said...

Yeah, imagine if I had found an injured, abused crocodile on the street!

redsock said...

It was NYC - mighta crawled out of the sewer.

Amy said...

I was thinking,as I read L's last comment, "In NYC, anything is possible."

In NYC, anything is possible.

Sounds like a city promo, or the tag line from a movie!
