The kids gathered around for our special guest keeping a safe distance. The crocodile was tied to the water bucket and couldn't really go anywhere.
Tom explained really well all the features of the crocodile. Doesn't he look like a real crocodile hunter?
The kids were very attentive and learned all about what crocodiles eat, why the look the way they do, and where crocodiles live.
Look at those dangerous teeth. We all stayed well away.
Even the dogs wanted to get in on the lesson. I didn't capture it on camera but Buzz, our part-Lab, came running up to explore and got a little too close. The crocodile whipped around suddenly and poor Buzz was so startled he flew sideways with all four paws leaving the ground at once. We all laughed 'till we nearly cried.
Two days later, ZAWA (Zambia Wildlife Association) officers came to pick up and relocate the baby croc. Another successful rescue!
