No crocodile tears! Russian walks ‘pet reptile’ on a leash at the beach


While Gulf citizens have been known to boast of having pet tigers in the past, it seems Russians appear to favor reptiles.

A Russian citizen was seen with a pet crocodile at the beach at Novorossisk a few days ago. A video of him walking the crocodile on a leash while allowing beach-goers, including small children, pet the animal has gained nearly 60,000 views on YouTube.

Environmental authorities are said to have confiscated the crocodile and returned it to the Anapa Zoo.
