Salt water crocs as pets
The TV channel Animal Planet has a series, Fatal Attractions, which
recounts events of people who keep exotic and dangerous pets (tigers and
lions are common examples, but there are others such as chimps, viper,
bears, etc.). These usually end horrifically and tragically for the
owner, neighbors, or both. Frankly, the level of stupidity exhibited by
the owner's is staggering. It is actually disturbing how often large
numbers of tigers and lions are kept in suburban settings with few
neighbors being aware of it.
Anyway, tonight's (3/10) episode they tell the story of people who keep
salt water crocs and house pets. The ads show a fairly large croc being
carried around inside a house and sitting in the car next to the
driver! This might be amusing and instructive to those on this list who
think it would be great to have a live non-avian dinosaur around the
house, especially theropods.
