Best Buddies

A Costa Rican named Chito enters the water and taps the surface with his hand, calling out Pocho, Pocho, Pocho. Seventeen foot long Pocho the Crocodile answers the call like a pet Cocker Spaniel, only with a lot more teeth My Mate Pocho. The two put on a wrestling act for tourists ending with Chito giving his buddy Pocho a big hug. The fisherman rescued the big croc with a bullet wound, nursed him for six months and tried to set him free. Pocho wouldn’t go. They’ve been together ever since. As one commenter to the article pointed out, this story will have a good ending as long as Pocho has a full belly.  :)

That last sentence is exactly my same thoughts. Keep the pet fed.

Yeah, Charles, that is one wild and crazy guy. Unwanted future article headline - Pocho plays with his food. :)

Agreed. That's quite a smile Pocho has there. Belly full is good, lol.

Still, there's something very touching about the way even the wildest of dreatures can be devoted and loving (yes, animal lover here, lol).

Animal lover here too, Raine, but... but... all those teeth. :(
