Pet crocodile takes over man’s apartment Published: March 27, 2014

Crocodiles do not make good pets—this according to the Crocodilian Natural History and Conservation website. Not that most people in the world need to be told this. But obviously there are a few who do need to be told this.

Like Sergei Falkov, a Russian from Siberia who bought a baby crocodile in Africa, took it home to his apartment in Irkutsk, Russia, and began raising it as a pet, apparently thinking it would be easier than traditional pets, according to

“Actually, reptiles do not need any special care; they eat very rarely and require minimum care,” Falkov told Reuters. “Compared to cats and dogs, they don’t need any special care at all. The only thing is that you need to have professional skills to handle them; not everybody would agree to do that.”
