That's a Load o' Croc!

Without photographic evidence, I wouldn't believe it. Some guy saved a crocodile's life and now they are best buds. Uh-huh:












It's story of salvation and . . . I dunno. Not sure this will play well in New Jersey, either. This is sure to make Jimbo cringe.

More incredible pics and story at the link.

It's just a pair of shoes and a handbag away from a fairy tale come true.

Jaysus Farookin' Christ!

It's just a matter of time before "Chito" becomes "Luncho."

Reminds me of that douchebag who was pals with Grizzly bears. All they found of him were bits of his spinal column on the ground.

Not to be contrarian, but I find it rather sweet, albeit extremely chance-y, but life is about taking chances and, as Hairboy all too well knows, you can't steal home plate while keeping your foot on third base.

Awww a boy and his croc. Tender moments from International Coffees.

There's a tv show in there somewhere...

The same thing once happened to my Uncle Bodie. But, in his case, it was a black panther.
Both were later killed in a terrible fishing accident.

Jimbo anticipated me. Remember what good buddies Tim Treadwell was with his Grizzly Bear Pals?

I don't see a happy ending here...

Oh, and here's something:

"Shot in the left eye by a cattle farmer after preying on a herd of cows, Chito enlisted the help of several friends to load the massive reptile into his boat..."

Chito should be ashamed of himself, preying on those cows. And with his eye shot out, it must've been a bitch for him to load that croc into his boat...

Misplaced modifiers have all the fun, don't they?

Here's what I think is the best of the stories:

Lady and the Lion

Ana Julia Torres runs a nature conservancy [details vary]. Some years back, she rescued a young lion from a circus.

Now they're friends.

Reminds me of "Androcles and the Lion".
