Pet Crocodile

Chito the Costa Rican fisherman found this crocodile on the side of a river dieing after being shot in the eye by a cattle farmer. Chito took the croc into his own home and took care of him while he recovered. 20 years later their still great friends.

“When I found Pocho in the river he was dying, so I brought him into my house,” he said.

“I stayed by Pocho’s side while he was ill, sleeping next to him at night. I just wanted him to feel that somebody loved him, that not all humans are bad.

“It meant a lot of sacrifice. I had to be there every day. I love all animals – especially ones that have suffered.”

It took years before Chito felt that Pocho had bonded with him enough to get closer to the animal.

He says: “After a decade I started to work with him. At first it was slow, slow. I played with him a bit, slowly doing more.

“Then I found out that when I called his name he would come over to me.”

“He’s my friend, I don’t want to treat him like a slave or exploit him.”

“I am happy because I rescued him and he is happy with me because he has everything he needs.”
