Return Of The Crocodile


My Google alert system passed me a fun story the other day. (http://www.allheadlinenews.com/articles/7007794154) Apparently some fishemen such as these had their boats attacked by a 16 foot (about 5 metre) crocodile in Giza. Witnesses saw the croc kill a dog and go back into the river. Nile crocodiles have been hard to find in the Nile since the high dam was built and passage from the lake behind the dam was closed. But there are shops in Cairo that sell exotica and there are people who might think that a poor little crocodile deserved a life of freedom rather than a bathtub. Once in the river, I imagine that life wouldn't be so tough.
