Croc Files

by Linda Brookover

"In Malaysia it is said that a crocodile has two pairs of eyes, one pair for daylight and one pair for night and under water. It also has a special stomach in which it hides its human victim's clothes. A child which has fallen into a river may turn slowly into a crocodile, beginning by growing a tail. The head remains human longest." - Jan Knappert
