This is still my favorite capture! This was a problematic croc that we were asked to remove by local residents from WASA. The croc became problematic because it was being illegally fed as a "tourist attraction." Crocodiles are apex predators, just like bears, and learn to associate humans as a food source once fed. In the USA, any alligator that has been fed by humans is shot immediately. Please do not come to Belize and feed the wildlife. It is illegal here, just as in any other country, under the Belize Wildlife Protection Act (Chapter 220). If you wish to assist ACES with crocodile research while in Belize, please email [email protected] or visit our website at www.americancrocodilesanctuary.org.
Thank you for your support in saving our wildlife for future generations.
