Had the pleasure of visiting, "Le Bonheur", Croc farm. Had the opportunity to handle a small Croc and understand the idiosyncrasies of the "Nile crocodile". The owner " Stefan" gave a personalized tour with details.

The crocodiles are used for laying eggs which are hatched. The offsprings are killed at age 2 for the meat and skin.
