A few months ago, Carol Ofori had the opportunity to visit the Crocworld Conservation Center, which is located on the south coast of KZN. She had the pleasure (or not so much if you don’t like crocodiles) to meet the oldest crocodile held in captivity.

The old man’s name is Henry and he just happens to be celebrating his 121st birthday today. First, we just wanted to appreciate that he’s over a century old and still looks good and is still in the entertainment business…I guess there’s no crocodile retirement…
