I can imagine hearing the tick, tock, tick, tock, as I read this story about Taiwanese zoo veterinarian Chang Po-yu, who had his arm bit in half by a 17 year-old crocodile. The 440- pound Nile crocodile that had been tranquilized and was about to be medicated. The vet soon found that he had personally armed the croc; zoo officials shot the croc two times and it was disarmed. Thankfully unlike Captain Hook, in Disney’s Peter Pan, they were able to reattached the mans arm.
Here’s Chito a man who had a once in a lifetime relationship with Pocho a 17 foot crocodile, Chito (Gilberto Sheedan) would swim with this monster croc. Together they preformed as the Chito and Pocho Show, until Pocho died of natural causes in late 2011. This is crazy and cool to watch. 1, 2, 3, 4.
We’re in this life together: When we become too complacent with life, that’s when things go wrong. Don’t take anything for granted.
