All families have their little secrets, but this broken couple hid something in their basement that no one could have guessed…
Very unusual pets. The couple living in Essonne, in Etrechi, was recently talked about for a very specific reason. Sandra and Benjamin are animal friends.and many of them, as reported Parisian. Only for them, no chickens, no hamsters, no. In addition to their five dogs, their turtle and a few birds, The couple has been keeping two pygmy crocodiles in the basement and a caiman upstairs for 20 years. And despite their name, these crocodiles are still the same 2 meters in length and clearly require special permission from their owners. Problem: If Sandra and Benjamin brought them together, now only Sandra takes care of them after the divorce announced between the former spouses.
Our colleagues report that reptiles soberly named Mr and Mrs Crocodile, aged 45 and 30. and have never seen the light of day since they arrived in this cellar in Essonne. Their precarious, sub-standard installation has worried the Animal Welfare Association (APA), which, upon learning of the file, is doing its best to move the two crocodiles to a more suitable location. In addition to improving the quality of life of the two exotic animals, this relocation also has a legal purpose because, as Sandra explained Parisian, he does not have certificates giving the right to keep, feed and care for these animals. Her husband is responsible for two crocodiles, but after the divorce, he can no longer go to this house.
Crocodile owner in trouble
“It will hurt to leave him.” Sandra explained before adding: “but I can’t keep them. I call for help. The situation has been going on for 18 months.”. However, his call was heard, as the Association for the Protection of Animals found not only carriers specializing in this kind of “cargo”, but also place for a pair of reptiles in a nature reserve in Germany. As the President explained to APA, “These animals are not designed to live in such conditions.“If a crocodile owner is still hopeful that he can restore his animals to their new habit, the fact that his new installations are still far from complete may give the association time to send them to a shelter where they will benefit from a much more suitable habitat.” .
