Would like to give a heads up to anyone coming down on a visit. New scam by the kids feeding the crocs. They are now asking people to give them money to buy chickens as they are "raising money for their basketball program". Please don't encourage them by giving them money.

People can't help themselves sometimes, no matter what you tell them! (even with the threat of a fine) Somehow these enterprising young Belizeans need to be given an alternative, they would be excellent guides for a midnight Croc safari of some sort.

Itís nine oíclock at night and pitch black outside on the murky waters of the New River in northern Belize. An airboat carrying a group of tourists and two guides zips along, plowing through tall grasses and across marshy floodplains on this cool evening. The tourists, who sport noise-blocking headphones and life vests, anxiously follow the spotlight as one guide darts it from bank to bank across the dark expanse of river. After about a half hour, the boat slows, and the spotlight illuminates two shiny red dots beaming up from the shallow waters: The telltale eyes of a Moreletís crocodile.
