croc by royal palms today - 04/10/07 07:13 PM

from a friend

I thought it might be fair to warn pet owners and owners of small children that there has been a croc in the water in front of Royal Palms all day today. It is not a big one and I suspect there is something wrong with it, but nevertheless it is alive. It is very near shore but you might not notice it if you weren't looking for it. The neighbours have alerted the police but I am not sure what, if anything, can be done.

I'll let you know when and if he is removed

Some kids went in and threw things at him and he has disappeared from sight - doesn't mean he's not in the water though, but certainly not visible any more.

Re: croc by royal palms today - 04/10/07 09:27 PM

Maybe the Croc read this message board about that cool new reef under the RP dock. OR Capt Jeff got a new snorkle suit and was trying it out today.

I think the crocodile saw the sign about no visitors may use the Royal Palms pier at night -so he has moved on to another pier for the evening snack. Probably down by my house.

There is a fair sized (6 ft or so) croc that fishes the area from TMM to Boca Ciega on the sea (east) side. Usually it is spotted between RPV and JZB's house.

I asked a local old time fisherman if I should worry about swimming with the crocs. He said "Amanda, there have always been crocodiles around, in fact I see them almost every time I through the river - right close to little kids swimming - but they never attack - never bite. I wouldn't suggest you swim in the sea when it is very murky and churned up, but if it is clear the crocodile just wants to get out of your way."

Re: croc by royal palms today - 04/11/07 11:13 PM

I know this is going to upset the croc huggers out there, but come on: can't anyone get rid of it?

I know its illegal for some private person to kill it (what a shame), but can't the cops come and kill it or something? I was thinking of buying a condo at Royal Palms, but not if there is going to be a croc there. I thought that crocks stayed away from the ocean side. I won't buy oceanfront if there isn't a way to get rid of those nasty buggers if they come around. Thats why I won't buy lagoon front.

Re: croc by royal palms today - 04/11/07 11:22 PM

Have the cops come and kill it??? That makes no sense! They should just pull him over and give him a ticket for trespassing! God knows those nasty crocs have no business hanging around the Caribbean! Next thing you know we'll have monkeys hanging out in the trees!

Re: croc by royal palms today - 04/12/07 12:33 AM

Yeah, and let's take KVarner's advice and kill all of those dangerous indiginous animals along with the crocks, like the sting rays, that endanger peoples lives who might otherwise come and buy condo's here. What a better place it will be when those nasty animals are gone and we have the island full of these type of condo owners.

Re: croc by royal palms today - 04/12/07 03:29 AM

I said I'd annoy the croc huggers. But seriously, people, they're reptiles. Vermin. Nasty buggers.

By the way, I'm moving to the island during the first week of June. Don't worry, I won't bring my arsenal until I get the proper permits. I generally tend to abide by the law, even if I disagree with it. Which means that I won't go around blowing off the heads of vile vermin. I just intend to buy a nice place and drink a lot of Belikin and mind my own damn business.

Re: croc by royal palms today - 04/12/07 10:17 PM

kvarner, Why don't you just buy a condo in the states? That way you will be safe from those varmin Belizian Crocs and you can keep your guns to protect you from whom ever you think is still after you. Then the Crocs of Ambergris Caye will still live on the land that they have been since long before any humans moved there, And the Island will prosper by not having a gun toting "Gringo Fool" trying to push his way of life unto it!! smirk Sounds like a win - win situation to me. wink
Posted By: KVarner

Re: croc by royal palms today - 04/12/07 10:43 PM

Or, I could...move to Ambergris Caye, get a gun permit, and spend all day drinking Belikin and bitching about the crocs that I don't like. I think that the latter option sounds more appealing. Belive it or not, I really like Ambergris Caye. I think that there might be a few people on the island who like me, too. Of course, they aren't tree/croc hugging pinkos, either.

Glad the croc was not around the other afternoon when my Molly dog (6lb) fell off the RP dock. She wasn't breathing when I fished her out but at least she was not early dinner for the croc.

Re: croc by royal palms today - 04/13/07 01:10 PM

Ya know, KVarner, I'm starting to see your point. Let's simply do away with ALL the animals that have encroached on OUR land and/or pose a potential threat. I've compiled a list, which is in no way complete, but certainly is a start.

1. Crocs (of course, nasty critters)
2. Alligators
3. Lions
4. Tigers
5. Elephants
6. Hippos (or Rhinos - one of them is mean, I'm sure)
7. Bears
8. Wolves
9. Mountain Lions
10. Mosquitoes
11. Bees, wasps, hornets (end of pollination, but who cares, THEY BITE)
12. All fowl (Avian Flu)
13. Dogs
14. Cats (hey, I'm sure someone, somewhere died of cat scratch fever...)
15. Deer (they run in front of cars and cause crashes)
16. Moose (see above)
17. Snakes
18. Spiders
19. All bugs that bite
20. Humans....Actually, they hurt, maim and kill more people than all the other creatures on Gods green earth combined!

Ok, there's my list. LOCK AND LOAD!

Look, I just don't like crocs. They are nasty buggers.

I have been known to spray things on bugs that kill them, put mouse traps out to kill mice, and murder spiders and destroy their webs.

If I see a scorpion, I will stomp it or something. The bugger isn't going to live in my house!!!

Crocs don't have property rights; humans do. If you like crocs, good for you. I hate them and will do everything I can legally do to keep them off of any piece of property that I hold legal title to.

I am wondering if you dont like/want crocs near you, then why would you buy property where they are?

wouldnt it be easier to just go somewhere where there arent crocs so that you may enjoy your relaxation?

I never understand why people buy land 'to be near nature' then proceed to kill it or device some way to keep it out of there land

By extension:

Postulate 3. 2Mile does not like KV (Possibly a bad assumption but methinks not).
Postulate 4. Therefore KV needs destroyed.

That might well be where you are wrong Senor. The crocs are protected under the laws of Belize. If you are caught molesting them or killing them you will not be getting your gun permit!! You might get to have a toasty warm free room at the Hattieville Ramada instead of sipping margaritas on the Caye.

Re: croc by royal palms today - 04/14/07 12:34 AM

They are legally protect by Belize law. That does not mean that they have rights. To have rights in an ontological sense is reserved for rational creatures such as man.

I have repetedly prefaced my comments about crocs with something to the effect of "if it were legal" or "to the extent that it is legally allowed". As much of a pain in the ass as it is, I will obey the laws of Belize--even the stupid ones.

Re: croc by royal palms today - 04/16/07 02:58 PM

We have 2 types of crocodile in Belize - the Morelet's which is a freshwater species and the American Saltwater. There is some cross-breeding in areas where their habitats meet (further up the bigger rivers.)

If you get a chance try and find a copy of National Geopgraphic's Crocodile Chronicles with Brady Barr, much of it was shot here in Belize with the researchers from Texas Tech.

Q: What's the difference between your mother in law and a crocodile?
A: Crocodiles are kind. They tear at your flesh and hold you under the water to drown, then they push your body under an old log to rot.



Q: What's the similarity between a Crocodile and Windows?
A: Neither of them has enough bytes.



Q: How many arms has a crocodile got?
A: Depends how far he has got with eating his dinner



Crocodile is longer

Prove that the crocodile is longer than it is wide.

Lemma 1. The crocodile is longer than it is green: Let's look at the crocodile. It is long on the top and on the bottom, but it is green only on the top. Therefore, the crocodile is longer than it is green.

Lemma 2. The crocodile is greener than it is wide: Let's look at the crocodile. It is green along its length and width, but it is wide only along its width. Therefore, the crocodile is greener than it is wide.

From Lemma 1 and Lemma 2 we conclude that the crocodile is longer than it is wide.

Re: croc by royal palms today - 04/26/07 05:13 AM

Hmmmmmm...... What bothers me about this is that at no time did you attempt to learn about these crocs. They are not aggressive unlike the freshwater ones. They will literally avoid you unless you have a chicken on a rope or are a small dog or an infant whose thoughtless Parents left next to the waters edge. I so hope this thread gets pulled because it's just plain dumb. No meat and potatoes. <yawwwwwwwwn!!!>

Re: croc by royal palms today - 04/26/07 03:09 PM

"They are not aggressive unlike the freshwater ones."

Freshwater crocs are very timid and are literally terrified of humans (try to get close to one.) However this rule doesn't apply if you're trying to collect eggs from their nest.

Re: croc by royal palms today - 04/26/07 03:19 PM

Who cares if they are agressive or not? They are still nasty creatures.

Re: croc by royal palms today - 04/26/07 04:07 PM

Well There are many accounts of people swimming in the rivers being eaten by crocks but none I know of, of the Saltwater variety.
Posted By: SimonB

Re: croc by royal palms today - 04/26/07 05:44 PM

Not in this country according to researchers, 2 confirmed croc attacks in the last 50 years, no fatalities. Both were in the New River, one was a fisherman with a stringer attached, the other was someone running from the police who jumped in the river on top of a croc and was bit. The one in Belize City a few years back was determined to not be a croc attack but a simple drowning (friends were at the autopsy.)
Posted By: TrueLover

Re: croc by royal palms today - 04/27/07 12:03 PM

Intersting. I've heard so many stories. Last year a woman disapeered while swimming but no body saw her get attacked. The locals all thought a croc but she was never found. I guess there are many other explanations possible like a snake or plain drownding. What's a stringer? Bait line? Well 50 years is a long time. So I guess even the fresh water ones ya gotta jump on em to get bit? Thanks Simon.

You can find moral courage in that these are Nile crocs and not Belize crocs.

See these Nile croc belly leather shoes for a softer touch -WOW:

CROCODILE SHOES


Sven happens to be passing a shoe shop in San Pedro one day, and in the window he spots a pair of shoes. He likes them, so he enters the shop and asks the shop assistant, "How much are those shoes in the window, buddy?"

"Those are one thousand dollars, sir," replies the assistant.

Holy crocodile!" exclaims Sven, "That's an awful lot for a pair of shoes."

"Well, sir, they are crocodile shoes, very rare," says the assistant.

Sven certainly can't afford $1,000 for a pair of shoes so he leaves the shop and goes home. He calls, Olle, about the shoes, and Olle has a brilliant idea: "Sure, Sven, and we should go to Northern Ambergris and hunt crocodiles and we'd make ourselves a fortune, sure enough!"

Sven is very impressed with this idea, so off they both go to Northern Ambergris and they hire a guide to show them to the most crocodile-infested part of the lagoon there.

They make camp and Olle says to Sven, "Tell you what, Sven, you start hunting the crocodiles, I'll go back to town to find us a truck." So off Olle goes, back to town with the guide leaving Sven to get on with the tricky task of hunting the crocodiles.

A couple of weeks later, Olle has pretty much drained the town of all available bottles of Budweiser and is running low on cash, so he decides to go back to the camp and see how his friend Sven is getting on.

As he pulls into the camp in the truck, he sees crocodiles everywhere, stacked in huge piles by the hut, stacked along the lagoon bank, hundreds and hundreds of crocodiles.

He jumps out of the truck and goes in search of Sven, and just then there's a commotion in the river, loads of splashing, and Sven comes to the surface clinging onto a huge crocodile which he wrestles to the shore then clubs to death.

"How's it going, there, Sven?" asks Olle.

"Terrible," replies Sven, "in fact I've caught about a thousand of these things and I've still not found one of them wearing shoes!"

Thanks Eldo for my morning laugh. So have the crocks left the area by Royal Palm?

indygal,

No, that little guy took off after his day in the spotlight. Unfortunately, the illegal croc feeding is still going. Why doesnt someone put up a sign? Most tourists would not participate if there were a sign there saying 'American Crocodiles are a protected species in Belize' Anyone who participates in the feeding or any other harrassment of crocodiles is breaking Belize law and could be fined $1000'.

When I have spoken to tourists who have gone to see the feedings, they all said that they wouldn't have gone if they had known it was illegal.

Anyway Indygal, no crocs but the land sharks are still circling. Hope to see you soon.

They don't put up a sign because everytime one is erected it is destroyed and removed within 24 hours.

Re: croc by royal palms today - 05/29/07 09:37 PM

They should try erecting a sign about 15 feet from shore in the water. Might discourage people from wading in just to destroy it. Just a thought.

Excellent idea, JZB. I know it would prevent a lot of people from wading around;there. It would have an even bigger impact if it had a picture of one of the little buggers on it.

I have been sporting my new Croc sandels here on the island and so far they seem to repel all the Crocs (And the land sharks too). I hear Jan Brown is selling them accross from the green house for around $80bz ($40us) a pair (Not a bad price since they sell for around $30us in the states).

CROC DROP

Perhaps attempting an escape from the upcoming Russian winter,
a crocodile took a swan dive out the 12th-floor window of an apartment building in Sarov, a Russian nuclear research town.
Bystanders on the street below may have been astonished to see a 3.3 foot reptile plummeting toward Russian pavement. But authorites apparently saw nothing wrong with the picture - the exotic pet, which survived the fall with nothing more than an injured tooth, was eventually returned to its owner's apartment.
