Rolling around like two playmates Costa Rican fisherman Chito and giant male crocodile Pocho are the unlikeliest of friends. Known as the Crocodile Man, 52-year-old Chito swims, plays and even feeds the five metre long crocodile in the 100 metre squared lake close to his home. Chito rescued the 980 pound crocodile 20 years ago after finding him close to death in a nearby lake. Shot in the head by farmers after eating cows, Chito nursed the reptile back to health. After 10 years of bonding, Chito began to play with Pocho. Today tourists travel from all over the world to see the unusual spectacle.
