Hippos too and they’re just as bad if not worse.

Hillary's new book: "it takes a village to feed a crocodile".
LOL!

I think hippos are about the only natural enemy the crocks have. They'll step on them and hold them under until they drown.

College kids used to see how many of them they could fit inside a phone booth. Nigeria has a different take.

I’d rather swim with crocs than in the Ganges.

You can’t say ‘Niger’ any more. It’s African-American River.

No problem. I’d do it for $1,000,000 plus expenses including a allowance for destroyer escorts.

Supposedly the world's largest croc was captured last year in the Philippines:

Snapped up: Villagers capture world's largest crocodile (which weighs one ton and is 21ft long)

If this is real, it beats the previous record.

Looks fake to me. Otherwise, how did they kill it? I don’t think Troy could kill this one with a .22 calibre.

Go ahead start without me. But I promise, I’ll be along in a few. ;)

It’s a Reptile-American.

Chiggers are now Insect-Americans.

Old photo perspective trick. Have the people stand farther back and it makes the croc look bigger.

It’s a Reptile-American.

Chiggers are now Insect-Americans.

Holder disagrees. Speaking on behalf of the Head Half-rican, the Immaculated Obama - Holder interpreted the Constitution and arrived atthis conclusion: “All American beings once derogatorily called “chiggers” WILL henceforth be known as “chigroes”.

Hell, I'll do it for $627/month plus per diem.

Seems like I've signed those papers before....

Lets go play.

You link features one of the most glaring reasons why Al Goreghoul should be prosecuted and imprisoned for life, for it is his anthro global warming hoax which removes focus from REAL pollution of the planet, to focus on ‘carbon trading’ to make him a billionaire while disease and pollution rise unchecked being ignored.
