Sergei Falkov of Russia bought the reptile in Africa as a baby, but he doesn’t know what to do with it now that it’s grown; it lies on his couch.

Crocodiles do not make good pets—this according to the Crocodilian Natural History and Conservation website. Not that most people in the world need to be told this. But obviously there are a few who do need to be told this.

Like Sergei Falkov, a Russian from Siberia who bought a baby crocodile in Africa, took it home to his apartment in Irkutsk, Russia, and began raising it as a pet, apparently thinking it would be easier than traditional pets.

“Actually, reptiles do not need any special care; they eat very rarely and require minimum care,” Falkov told Reuters. “Compared to cats and dogs, they don’t need any special care at all. The only thing is that you need to have professional skills to handle them; not everybody would agree to do that.”

Should he use multiple .22s
to keep things from getting
messy, or the 7.62x39 that
Russians manufacture.

Smaller callibers might just raise its
ire.

Don’t just stop feeding it.

Its not the poor croc’s fault, but I just can’t resist sharing this delicious recipe anyway:

Let’s hope Mr. Croc finds a good home (without cats) where he will be appreciated
