If you stay at the Savanna Guest House in Belize, you'll meet award-winning filmmakers Carol and Richard Foster... and their um, sort of pet crocodile Flossie.

Hi Richard,
I am a bit concerned about the message your video is sending. In Belize, you should know, it is illegal to feed protected endangered crocodiles. I do hope that you are informing guests of this. Not to mention it is not smart to feed any wild apex predators. Truth is also, that Morelet's are more aggressive than American crocodiles especially when it comes to protecting their young. If these crocodiles are able to leave the property, escape, they are very dangerous to other humans. You are changing their behavior and they have now lost their fear of humans. They will seek out humans for a source of food. If these animals are captive, I suggest that you file for the proper permits, which you currently do not have, with the Belize Forest Department. Finally, the hatchlings need to forage on their own to eat the proper variety of prey to become healthy adults. Less that one percent of eggs laid hatch and survive to reach sexual maturity, and that is without any human interference. If you would like more proper information on crocodile biology and behavior to share with your guests about these amazing animals may I suggest contacting ACES.
Thank you,
