Funny Crocodile Pictures
Will and Guy's Collection of Funny Crocodile Pictures
A picture of one of the biggest crocodiles we have ever seen - taken in South Africa. You can get an idea of the size of the crocodile from the woman nestling under his forearm.
The biggest ever crocodile is a tricky call. The Guinness book of records list 'Yai' a hybrid crocodile from Thailand at 20ft. However, there are claims for crocodiles of over 30ft. What is indisputable is that the largest species of crocodile is Crocodylus porosus which lives in estuaries. Because this species of crocodile occurs all over the world, there are claims from Indonesia, Bangladesh, South Africa and Australia.
What do you call a robber escaping by parachute? Condescending.
Did you know that a collection of crocodiles is called a 'Float?
A 65 year old man called Albert had a large pond on the western edge of his farm in Florida. Over the years he had the pond converted for swimming. He laid a patio complete with picnic tables, and planted some peach trees. It was an
One late summer evening Albert decided to go down to this idyllic, tranquil beauty spot pondto collect some fruit; so he picked up a bucket and went to collect some peaches.
As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee. As Albert came closer, he saw it was three of young women skinny-dipping in his pond.
Albert frowned, 'I didn't come down here to watch you ladies swim, or make you get out of the pond naked.'
Holding up the bucket he said, 'I'm here to feed the crocodile.'
Some old men can still think fast!
At times nature can be cruel, but there is also a raw beauty, and even a certain justice manifested within that cruelty. Special report by Freddi Schneider.
The alligator, one of the oldest and ultimate predators, normally considered the "apex predator", can still fall victim to implemented 'team work' strategy, made possible due to the tight knit social structure and "survival of the pack mentality" bred into the canines.
See the remarkable photograph below courtesy of Nature Magazine. Note that the Alpha dog has a muzzle hold on the gator preventing it from breathing, while another dog has a hold on the tail to keep it from thrashing. The third dog attacks the soft underbelly of the gator.
Not for the squeamish!
Alli Shedden, from Siquirres in Costa Rica, found the crocodile, which had a bullet in its head, in a swamp.
He took the injured animal home, named it Poncho and nursed it back to health, reports Las Ultimas Noticias. It took him four years to heal the 58-stone crocodile - by which time he says his wife had accepted it. See the funny crocodile picture below.
Mr Shedden told Las Ultimas Noticias, 'The crocodile has never done anything to harm me, he knows who I am, it is as if it is a dog, it eats off my hands.
'When Poncho arrived I was unemployed and now people pay to see me playing with my pet, I want to put together a show, so I can show the world our friendship.'

Observe the picture carefully, do you see that crocodile lurking in the murky water?
If you count the alligators and the caiman, there are 23 species of crocodile in the world today. While they can crawl on their bellies, or even walk like mammals, crocodiles are most at home in the water, as you can see from our funny crocodile pictures.
Differences between Crocodiles and Alligators
Crocodiles more pointed 'V-shaped noses, whereas alligators have a wide U-shaped, snout. If you see a an olive brown body wriggling in a tropical river it's more likely to be a crocodile. By comparison, alligators are darker and may appear almost black.
Will and Guy think that the teeth are the biggest clue in the croc -v- gator debate. In crocodiles, the lower 4th tooth looks like a peg and juts into the upper jaw. Alligators have a smaller lower jaw, thus when they close their mouth you don't see much of the lower teeth in general, and the 4th 'peg' in particular.
One of the strangest thefts occurred in Darwin, Australia. Police were searching for thieves who stole 18 saltwater crocodiles. The thieves broke into an enclosure at a crocodile farm and took 18 baby reptiles. The little crocs were less than 40cm (15 inches) long, amazingly they could be worth as much as $1,000 each on the black market.
"They have obviously found a way to get in and remove 18 crocodiles from the farm. Eighteen crocs of that size could fit in a tub and be moved reasonably easily," police spokesman Matt Crichton told Australian Associated Press. One motive maybe growing them for their crocodile skins which can be exported to Japan or Singapore, where they can be made into boots, handbags and belts.
Alligator Theft? - Police Surprised by Live Alligator in Car
Many car drivers are happy to transport their pets by car; dogs are commonplace as passengers all over the world. Recently, however, Will and Guy have established from 'The Facts' newspaper in Brazoria, Texas, USA that police who stopped a Buick car for carrying out an illegal u-turn received a surprise when they found that the driver was, in fact, a felon wanted for burglary.
What surprised the police even more was the fearsome reptile roaming free in the car: a live alligator some six feet long. They took this photograph of the alligator, at rest, on the rear window ledge.
Apparently the alligator was 'happy and content' and did not make any fuss when he was arrested and taken to a local nature reserve and set free.
