This croc pic is definately the most interesting picture here and the most worthy of discussion. By all acounts crocs are no where near tameable. I
really don't understand this picture at all(if real).. the others i easily understand having riden elephants myself and seen bigcats that are quite
tame when treated appropriately(on tv).
While researching this topic i did stumble upon a excerpt of her book. She was talking about taking pictures with crocs and said that they tied the
mouths up for one of the photo shoots, but i can't see anything on this ones mouth. That doesn't exclude the possibility of it being simple clear tie
or fish line.. It's mouth is fully closed so this is a possibility.
The other thing mentioned in her book was that they used a plastic croc(as in fake) for one of the photo shoots.. so yeah there goes the mysticism in
one gulp. It could also be dead? not sure.
ok, just looked up the book here's the link
Tippi basically says that for her to take a pic with a baby croc they had to tie up its mouth because it would have biten her. She said it would be a
miracle for anyone to play with a croc.
This leaves me thinking its gota be dead. her parents would not have trusted her with a real live croc that big if they had to tie up baby croc's
mouth for her to take pics with them. That animal is way too relaxed looking for having 60 pounds stepping on its back.

dang just found this man with a tame 1000lb croc www.youtube.com...
much more magical than a tied up baby croc with a toddler, just not as cute.
