Tending Crocodiles I

Getting into crocodile pits either for cleaning or picking out some of them for transfer means a mini-adventure.

Herding them to one side of the pool and bossing them with a pole or pulling them out by their tail - they all present an element of macho fun. Of course, the danger is very little if you understand the behaviour of various species. Arun can do this with a mugger but he is not allowed to enter alone the pits of saltie.

These mighty beasts respond to the thin bamboo pole just as circus lions look at the ringmaster's whip. Wonder what will happen if they call the bluff!

Warning - Kids...Don't try this on your own. Read this
