Pattaya Thailand Trip, The Crocodiles of Stone Park
There’s something about seeing a fellow apex predator up close that always reminds me of our original place in the food pyramid—eat or be eaten, kill or be killed. I know if I were down there with them that there’s a chance that they would make a meal out of me, and that, for me, always makes for a deliciously spine chilling realization. But what the sight of them really brought to mind was happiness, happiness that they were down there and I wasn’t.
Janine wanted to feed them a chunk of chicken tied to a rope hanging off of a pole. For a couple bucks the lady at the counter handed over the goods. In the video my girl seems okay with doing it, but then the sight of the monsters only a few feet below is more than she can handle. So, I take over.
Stand by for more on the other awesome stuff we saw at The Million Years Stone Park, like the elephant park for instance—my favorite!
