Palawan is a beautiful island, a paradise with crystal clear waters but no matter how paradise it is. It contains a kind of a dangerous reptile lurking in its waters — crocodiles.
The saltwater crocodile is one of the biggest reptiles in the world and could reach to 20ft long.
In February, a boy was attacked by a crocodile but was able to survive when his siblings battled with the creature.
Unfortunately on Wednesday, August 14, 2019. In Balabac town in Palawan, the parents of a 10-year-old boy are grieving for the loss of their son who was devoured alive by a crocodile.
Authorities reported that the boy was “snatched” by the crocodile while on a boat with his two siblings. According to the media report, the latest victim’s father held an overnight search for his son but failed to find his kid. A fisherman saw the boy’s head and remains the next day in a mangrove swamp.
Since 2015, we’ve never had a year with zero (crocodile) attacks,” an environmental group told Philippine Star.
Development in the area has forced creatures like crocodiles to leave their natural habitat and this has led to perilous results.
