TARCOLES (Costa Rica) — Tourists flock to Costa Rica’s Rio Grande de Tarcoles to see dangerous close encounters between river guides and crocodiles.

“Tornado is the biggest male in this river, the chief male. He is 5.5 metres long. The last time we weighed him — we did it with National Geographic —he weighed 850 kilogrammes,” said Jason Vargas Agüero, the Crocodile-Man.
“This type of reptile tends to grow continuously depending on its habitat, its surroundings and the availability of prey. And it also depends on the fact that there aren’t any enemies threatening them, because of the conservation efforts made nationwide,” another tour guide, Ronaldo Céspedes Rodríguez, told AFP. — AFP-Relaxnews
