Are we going to see more crocodile attacks in our modern communities now that we have good set ups of animal control conservation and protection. Well the situation is as grim as it could be for many of the places or natural habitat which are not yet accessible. While these animals attack here they are not expected while the attacks take place at random, the Nile crocodile is just one natural predator which needs all the respect it can be given.
The animal protection awareness through education information and communication has lead the animal rights being extend just as humans have rights as well. Despite that the animal protection and mechanism is still not in lace in many of the world communities where we have great animals such as the African crocodiles and other animals which are about to extinct or are almost declared as endangered, the animal rights and animal protection will pave the way in helping protect and conserve the Great Nile crocodiles which could have been wiped out in the African continent for their skin and for their food and worst of all because they are a menace due to their encroachment in human habitat which is in fact as a result of human encroachment in the Nile crocodiles natural habitat and breeding grounds.
As the scorching heat of the equator keeps on heating the land across the Savannah region, many of the great Nile river lakes which are sometimes seasonal tend to dry up. With drought or dry spells running for almost as far as five years, the Nile or African crocodiles are always left at the mercy of the prevailing weather conditions and the local communities to either transport them to different localities as they tend to fight for the same watering hole in search of water in these arid areas. While the rest of the four legged animals would travel to other long distant lands in search of water and greener pastures and animals of prey, the weak crocodiles, the old and the small crocodiles who are not strong enough to endure the prevailing dominant males in the watering holes or small rivers before they dry up are the animals which are most vulnerable in these adverse conditions. This is also the time when dangerous animals such as lions cheetahs, leopards the African dogs and the African hyenas find food in abundance at such watering holes as cores of animals would want to come to quench their thirst.
With few or less crocodile now being hunted as animals of trophies which included the African Big Five, this trend has no doubt seen the number of these dangerous Nile crocodiles see an increase. While the conflict between man and these beautiful Nile crocodiles will never cease so long as the population of both man and animal continues and fighting for human and animal territory keeps being in jeopardy, It will only be left for the civil society to help solve this conflict between the Nile crocodile though proper national animal rescue, animal protection and animal conservation while abiding to all Animal rights and Human rights as well.
