Rare Siamese crocodiles are shown off after they hatched at Britain's first zoo for the reptiles

Birth has single-handedly increased the global population by 2 per cent
Eight of the animals were born at Crocodiles of the World in Oxfordshire
Zoo was launched in 2011 by enthusiast and breeder Shaun Foggett
He hopes they will be used to boost last remaining wild crocs in Cambodia

I will admit that crocs are not one of my favourite animals but the picture of the four together is really rather lovely. I had not heard of Siamese crocodiles before and that's probably also why I didn't know they were so endangered, even more so than the Panda. They suffer from being killed and loss of habitat as much as a lot of other animals and its quite sad because they are not an animal that I would have given much thought about, which isn't good really.
It's amazing that this guy has sold his home and has reared so many crocs and reptiles.
An interesting link Doogs, thanks for that.

Thanks Doogs I remember seeing a programme on TV about crocodiles being bred and released, but I don't think it was this species, again it was because of habitat loss mainly same with so many species in the world today. I really hope they will be released into the wild, and help to increase their numbers, I also didn't realise they were more endangered that the Panda.


If I can make somebody smile, my day has been worthwhile
