Celebrating The 120th Birthday Of The Oldest Known Nile Crocodile

Happy 120th  birthday to the oldest known Nile crocodile in captivity - Henry! 

It truly is a rarity for these gorgeous crocodiles to get to 120 years of age, so, to celebrate, the Crocworld Conservation Centre on the KZN South Coast threw Henry the Nile crocodile a birthday party! Henry and the staff celebrated his birthday together, with the staff eating birthday cake, and Henry getting his favorite of all meaty snack. 

The crocodile arrived at the Crocworld Conservation Centre in 1985 when he was at the young age of 85. Today, he is five meters long, 700 kilograms in weight, and he is the father of over 10,000 offspring with his six female cohabitants. So, one can easily say that getting older has definitely not slowed Henry down even one bit.

Being the oldest known Nile crocodile in captivity, Henry has got many, many more years of leisure, relaxations (and a good time with the ladies) in his wonderful sanctuary. On top of all of his other very impressive achievements, he has also been listed at the second oldest crocodile in the world, with the number 1 spot having been taken by Mr. Freshie who was 140 years when he passed in 140. 

We wish Henry many more birthdays in the future, and may he break Mr. Freshie's record and live long beyond that as well.

Crocodile Skinks Look Like Tiny Baby Dragons

We have always wondered what life would be like if huge, terrifying dragons were flying in our skies like in movies or stories, but we have never realized that actually dragons are real and they live in our world already. Well, almost. They're actually tiny crocodile skinks, but they totally look like dragons, just of the cut variety rather than the scary variety.

Crocodiles kind of look like dragons already, let's be real. And for some reason, we don't give the royal dragon-like love and respect that they deserve. The fact that these crocodiles are so cute and tiny is only a bonus really, and it's the best bonus of all.
