Poor croc.

Is it like exotic dancers?

About an hour ago, my daughter was asking why you can't have pet crocodiles and how, surely, if you cuddled them from the moment of hatching, that they would be as lovely as the dog.

I doubt you would need a licence to keep an exotic dancer but you could well end up in trouble with the law.

Aren't there always those videos online where someone raise a Lion from a cub and released it into the wild, then revisited it years later only to have it act like a kitten again?

Are crocs smarter than Lions?

I’ve patted a (recently fed and thus sleepy) crocodile, but I didn’t find it remotely cuddly.

How could anyone hurt a lion? Or a crocodile?

Lots of ways. Run one over in a jeep, shoot it, poke it with a sharpened stick, step on its tail.....oh oops that's not what you were asking.

Hahaha. Poor crocodile.

Put it in the circus

The only time I’ve been close to a crocodile ( see above) I did mutter “handbag” and I swear its lower lip trembled.

I find those stories quite credible. Lions are quite social animals, and have been demonstrated to have a very good sense of discrimination of individuals within the pride.

Probably best not to try it with, say, a leopard though.

There was a recent document about two young men who bought a lion from Harrods, brought it up, released it in (?) Kenya, then visited it a year later, to be enthusiastically greeted by the Big Mog.

Having got the odd scratch from playing with moggies, I would be very wary of an enthusiastic lion.

The domestic cat is a good example though, of an animal which will recognize and remember you even if they haven't seen you for a few years.

Tristan the lion, bought from a shop on the King's Road and released in Africa.
