Pet crocodile takes over manís apartment
Grind TV ^ | March 26, 2014 | David Strege

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.”

I don’t know, but crocs consider humans to be delectable.

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

I hope you are coming.

Okay! The first one I fired belongs to a friend, and it kicked pretty
bad, but mine is a lot smoother, having a much longer barrel.

It is a girl’s rifle.

I like my PS-90 too. They’re only three generations apart.

Wonder if “Moose” has to share the litter box. Otherwise, where does one buy croc diapers?

Fair warning!
Our upcoming Shoot has all the promises of being a great one!

We’re going to do our very best to be there. I am looking forward to meeting you as well
as plenty of other FReepers who will be coming for the first time. ;-)

We have plenty of ordnance, and it is all in compliance with all the states we will be
passing through. There are mountains of paperwork in binders, and everything is in order.

Flying is not an option. I do not trust anyone with my ordnance but myself and Bryan.

hey Moose...got some good news and bad news for you....the good news is you are going to be moving to Sweden to live with a nice family....the bad news is they have a 16 inch rat in their kitchen.

i’m afraid years of therapy and drugs can’t help this poor cat.

Of course! That rifle is a tool that makes you feel like you could bayonet a tank! Every time I go to the range, I fire 1 round out of my Mosin-Nagant to announce my arrival.

The Person Holding the Mosin Nagant is my Father

I am off to the Right.

Here is me with an AR-15 before I lost it in a Tragic Boating Cave Diving Accident.

Hopefully I can bring more to the FReeper Shoot

You’ll enjoy a wide variety of Moseys and ARs..
along with other exotical stuff. True story.

It’s like a gun show where you can actually shoot the stuff.

This year it’s at a river, where we blast tennis balls and
wood chunks out of the water from the bluff above.

I know, that sounds pretty lame...

The Mosin has defeated ground troops armed with their own Mosins.
Whether the lesson in that is good or bad..

It’s still pretty cool.

Somebody with Mosins won.

I believe that you need to marinate croc meat a little longer than house cat meat...
