The Lady Who Lives With Crocodiles

by: VICE Asia Duration: 05:22

Wildlife carer Vicki Lowing is an animal lover, but she takes it further than most. Lowing has been living with crocodiles for thirty years, adopting them from former owners unable to meet their needs. Her beloved “pet” Jilly is thought to be one of the only saltwater crocs in the world raised to interact with humans non-aggressively. Jilly as well as four friendly freshwater crocs are free to roam around Vicki’s suburban Melbourne house, leaving her menagerie of adopted cats, birds, and lizards unscathed. Vicki has dedicated her life to caring for crocodiles, and she stresses that these complex and intelligent creatures shouldn’t be kept as pets by non-specialist owners.Click here to SUBSCRIBE to VICE Asia:
