Crocodile-Bites-Man Story
— LauraW.

South Africa:

"I took my horse for an evening swim in one of the farm dams. There are lots of crocs and hippos in the area but they move around all the time, from dam to dam and into the river and out again," he said.

"I was on the lookout for hippos and didn't see any. It slipped my mind that there might be crocodiles," he said.


Yes, I can see how that could slip your mind.

To Do List:
-Take horse for swim
-Watch out for hippos
-Pick up some Zebra steaks on the way home

YUP, totally blanked out on the whole crocodile thing.

"I'm lucky, I didn't lose too much blood ... The biggest problem with a croc bite is it can be septic. They never brush their teeth," said Abrahamse.

And when he gets out of the hospital does he plan to look for the culprit? "Oh yes, I'll be looking for him alright," he said with a laugh.


Tee hee! When I see that croc again, I'm going to give him such a pinch!

Thanks to snookums, who says "I like his attitude."

Hopefully, he will remember to also keep an eye open for hippos. It'd be shame if he were eaten by a hippo while he was looking for the crocodile.

3 hoppos are far more dangerous than crocs and account for far more fatalities. the most dangerous animal in africa? the water buffalo.

6 The filthy part about croc teeth is all too true. There was a Nat. Geo. Channel show about alligator attacks on humans in Florida (the damn things leaped out of bayous to attack people near the shore) where one woman was badly bitten, but was pulled free by rescuers. What did her in was the bacteria on the gator's teeth.

7 This is off-topic, but we've lost McCloud. Looks like he's the third.

8 Right, db, they always do come in threes. This is too dorky to admit, but I had a crush on him when he played McCloud.
