There's a couple other stories like this with different animals.

Still, they are still WILD animals. It takes years and years to truly form a domesticated animal, through evolution, these guys just got lucky.

Cool vid, and i loved your initial thought on his likely becoming lunch.

But it's "Ecthelion". Sorry, but i have an over-developed Tolkien nerve, and you made it twitch


Lol, grammar and spelling is an important issue in the world of type communications.

That is what I was thinking.

This isnt possible with most crocs.

This was just the one croc this was possible with.

Wow, nature can really surprise us with its wierdness sometimes. Good first thread OP, Thanks for sharing!

It can also be said that your first thread on ATS truly was a 'croc' !


Have an S&F

See that is my problem. I dont know if it actually cares or knows he is the path to the easy life, the golden goose or silver spoon, with eating him if he ever actually gets hungry later on.

Do they even possess the ability to understand or think this way?

I dont know, from what I know they are mouths with stomachs like sharks.


Many animals posses the concept of having friends and family. Just about all of them actually.

The difference between us and them is that when you live in the wild, nature doesn't give you a chance to be soft so you often have to suppress those instincts. Even people who don't have a society to rely on develop this habit. If you're not looking for it though you often miss it because most other animals don't have the language capabilities we do.

Oh, another thing, if you like this, you should search "Unlikely Animal Friends" on your DVR.

I found it pretty sad that the croc died supposedly of natural causes, but I believe it was only 20 some years old. It did sustain a head injury at a young age. So, it's pretty amazing to say that during its whole life, even if short lived, it never ate the guy or bit any limbs off.

Very interesting vid about a very special friendship. Thanks OP.

I just have a couple of comments. First, I think it illustrates a capability of the reptile brain that makes me look at it a little differently. Clearly, there was imprinting. What's more, the croc seemed able to transfer some of that imprinting to Roger. Abstract thought?

Second, I object to Chito being called a shaman. Their relationship was not that of a shaman and their animal spirit, which revolves around altered states of consciousness, projection, and ritual. Not imprinting.

I agree, it was a bond, not witnessed before.

Doesn't make it impossible though.
