— 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!
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.
