Man nurses wounded crocodile, makes him pet
SIQUIRRES, Costa Rica (KABC) -- A Costa Rica fisherman nursed a wounded crocodile back to health, and now the reptile has become his personal pet.
Chito found the reptile with a gunshot wound twenty years ago and helped heal him. Since then, the two have been inseparable.
Chito plays with the 17-foot, 980-pound crocodile like it was his pet dog.
It rolls over, the two wrestle, and they give each other hugs and kisses.
Chito has been entertaining visitors with his tricks for years. He said it took a long time before he felt that the crocodile had bonded with him enough to get up close and play games with the reptile.
