A crocodile rests in the shallow water of a croc pond while all his other buddies are seeking the sun. This ancient creature is one of a 1000 crocodiles on view at a crocodile farm. They like the murky water … similar to farm dams that children play in during summer.
WaterWise Instructor Desiree Pinetown saw the parallel in dangers when she visited the crocodile farm … they bring a WaterWise safety message to all kids, saying, ”Beware! Never ever swim in murky water. If you cannot see the bottom – do not enter.”
You never know how deep it is. You might be taken by surprise … and not be able to stand. There are potential hazards that you do not know about and it is not worth risking your life.”
This crocodile farm is securely fenced off. The farm boasts zero accidents. So it is quite safe to pay the crocodiles a visit, but because it is so easy to step into deep water – or slip into it – it may not be safe for children to swim in farm dams.
