Baby Crocodile Released and Now Sought in Angkor Wat

Cambodia News (Siem Reap): According to the Siem Reap Apsara Administration, on November 8, 2019, there was an order given by the provincial governor to the Apsara authority, and relevant teams, to search for a baby crocodile in the lake around Angkor Wat area. No further reasons were given for the search.

After inspecting the scene, the administration officer requested the Apsara Authority to collaborate with the forestry administration and the specialist team to catch the baby crocodile.
The officers reported that the baby crocodile would look for food at night along the banks and it hasn't left the water in search of food yet.

As a reminder, the baby crocodile was originally released into the lake around Angkor Wat by Mrs. Hun Sinath, the sister of the Cambodian PM.

They caught it already. Anyway, I'm sure you are all aware of the auspiciousness of crocodiles? If you know Khmer culture and live in the muddy countryside you will understand this. If you don't know you should try to live in the muddy countryside to understand this. I anyone reading this knows where I can get a nice crocodile bag PM me as soon as possible.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

They also make good shoes, but I think this one's a bit small. Crocodile fip-flops (thongs) maybe.
