Crocodiles Lurking


A missionary who served in Africa tells of the region in Malawi (just Northwest of Zimbabwe) where the women go to the river for water. Every once and a while one of them will get swept into the water by a big crocodile never to be seen again.

River crocodiles can be enormous creatures, 1,000 lbs. and up to 20 feet long. They can run faster than a man, and if they go for someone standing next to the river there is no defense short of a person with a big gun who can shoot well. They clamp onto a leg or arm and drag the person off to drown and be consumed at leisure. They are especially aggressive in Malawi and prey on large animals also. A walk along the river there is not a good idea.
