Harry the One-Handed Crocodile


One thing about the crocodiles in Costa Rica.  They sure are big!  The larger ones over 250 lbs.  They don't usually get this big in the USA because hunting is legal.  But the Costa Rican crocs have ways of thinning their numbers (literally!).  

A guide that took us on a boat through the mangroves told us the male crocodiles will eat the smaller males.  Pretty rough world to grow up in!

A local showed us one from his property by his house -- about two years old.  

Hopefully he can survive as long as Harry...
