Vegan Crocodile

Ananthapura Lake Temple

The wires are abuzz with reports of Babia, a vegan crocodile who acts as guardian of Ananthapura Lake Temple in Kerala, India.

While the priests only feed the sixtysomething year-old Babia large quantities of boiled rice and jaggery, accounts differ as to whether the croc supplements this austere diet with the local fish.

(What, you don’t know what jaggery is?! Here, I looked it up for you.)

    Sorry. But there is some mis-information about this Vegan crocodile. This crocodile eats the prasadam. But it also eats fish and chicken. Every week it is fed a chicken.
