While this is a heart warming story and the pictures are simply awsome, I will make a prediction.
Costa Rican fisherman Chito will eventually end up either losing a limb or worse from his "friend."
The crock cannot help being a crock, he is what he is.
Crocodiles are higher up on the food chain than we are and they are a wild animal.
I am normally an animal advocate. I do not endorse the hurting of any being, human or animal.
But, Chito sadly I am sure will ultimately pay for putting his trust in an animal that is misplaced because again, crocs are man eaters.
Beautiful pictures, and I really hope they remain friends forever and I am wrong.
Maybe this one croc has bonded enough with this guy, but some animals cannot help being what they are.
