Just recently in the newspapers there was a story about a man in the UK who keeps 24 crocodiles in his back garden, a bit scary for the neighbours, and the neighbour’s cats and dogs, I would imagine! However, if you fancy a pet crocodile without the sharp teeth getting in the way, you can always buy a Second Life version. There is a shop in virtual Mayfair called 2Xtreme which sells exotic animals and birds, and you can buy anything from a sweet little hummingbird to colourful macaw who is scripted to be a real companion. Luckily for me the crocodile was on a chain because he didn’t look very friendly, or maybe he just hadn’t been fed and purrs like a kitten once he’s had his dinner.
Go along to the 2Xtreme pet shop and pick yourself out an unusual pet, be careful not to step on the crocodile though!
