After seeing the crocodiles trying to finish off the two year old baby, I really don't care if they all become extinct. Name one redeeming thing about them.

PHNOM PENH, Feb. 19 (Xinhua) -- Ten baby Siamese crocodiles have been spotted in Cambodia, raising hopes that conservation efforts have achieved a breakthrough for a species once believed to be extinct in the wild, said Fauna & Flora International (FFI) on the press release on Wednesday.

The hatchlings were sighted in late January by FFI conservationists at the Veal Veng crocodile sanctuary, a protected part of a river in the Cardamom Mountains, Pursat province, the press release said.

It added that this was only the second time in a decade that baby Siamese crocodiles have been seen in the wild in Cambodia.

"This is a really significant moment and it feels like we have reached a turning point for the Siamese crocodile," said Pablo Sinovas, flagship species manager in Cambodia for FFI.

"For a species that for a long time was believed to be extinct in the wild to be breading[sic] and producing hatchlings is extremely exciting," he said.
