7 Crocodile as a pet? Bad bad idea!

Crocodile as a pet? Bad bad idea!

Sergey Falkov from Irkutsk, Russia, has always been interested in crocodiles. He was very happy when he bought one in Africa and could bring him home to Russia, but today his life under the same roof with the crocodile is far from ideal. Recently he has been made by the reptile to live in only one room while he has two rooms in his flat. The second room is fully under control of the crocodile Tuzik.

Sergey has no choice but to give his sofa to his 25 kg exotic pet Tuzik, to heat his room to 30C and to prop up the door of his bedroom with a stool.

When Sergey was buying the crocodile in Africa it was less than 20 cm long, and it was still rather young. The average life expectancy of such animals is 45 years, some of them may reach 80 years old. The weight of Tuzik has already grown to fourteen kilograms, and his length is about to reach two meters. When the crocodile becomes three meters long it will be considered to be only a teenager.
Sergey was hoping he would teach Tuzik to behave like a pet but after two years of fruitless attempts to train the animal he simply gave up.
The animal still regularly needs to take a bath, to eat and to have its own clean territory.

    I think that this boy and others like him are mentally retarded and they need medical help.This animal belongs to the wild and not on someone’s couch.I really hope that at some point the crocodile will bite his arms,legs or his dumb ass.

    He is living with the most dangerous animal on earth, so he has to consider donating the krokodil to a zoo.

    yeah, I forget the exact species, but there is only one particular sub species that doesn’t so much “tame up” but isn’t intent on eating humans… it can be walked on a leash, live near humans without being a threat. Most of the others though are pretty well insanely territorial.

    I used to live up Near Darwin in Australia (salt water crocodile and fresh water crocs live there) salt water crocs are very agressive, constantly bite or eat people, fresh water crocs are less agressive, you would know if an area was safe to swim in, because if it only had the smaller fresh water crocodiles (which ment the big salties hadnt chased them off or eaten them). Although I wouldnt have a problem swimming near fresh water crocodiles, i would never own one as a pet… I have had several large lizards and snakes as pets though, they make better pets, even show affection.
