I love the crocodile park for letting us have a glimpse on the world of crocos and their like, however, seeing also children exposed to these kind of danger makes me think twice.
I have been in the park a few times in the past and have learned to love the animals in it and the animal show.
The last visit (April 09) was different for me, maybe because of the many deaths I've witnessed these last months with relatives and loved ones of friends.
I used to think I' m brave in many things but I just cannot bear to see the TIGHTROPE WALKING show where a man walks along a thin rope at a great height (without harness and safety net) and performs a number of stunts with big and hungry crocodiles swarming underneath him, waiting for his fall - i just cannot take that. I pity the stuntman and I fear for his life.
In the end, I content myself with visiting the ostrich and the birds in the park while waiting for the TW show to end.
Until now, I can't help but think, what if all those crocos made their way outside the park and 'invade' the city? Ew.. too morbid for me.. Anyway, that's just my active imagination working - need to eat my lunch now - croco spicy, anyone? ;-)
