What To Know About The Crocodiles In The Paga Crocodile Pond

The only thing that kills the crocodiles here is natural death. There is never a death that was caused by a human. This is because the crocodiles here are forbidden to be hunted, harmed or killed. The people of Paga believe that these crocodiles are somehow connected to the spirit of their ancestors. That is why the crocodiles are regarded as being sacred in the community. Also, these people make sure that these crocodiles are fed by offering them sacrifices of live fowls. The crocodiles have in turn learned to live in harmony with the people as they do not harm them. However, this is not to say that the crocodiles are not dangerous. There is just something about the crocodiles of Paga and the people of Paga. Theirs is an unusual friendship.
