According to this report, Crocodiles are now the number one predator in Zimbabwe, taking over from elephants.
Crocodiles dragged away and ate 13 people -- including children -- in the first 10 months of 2005, according to the Communal Areas Management Program for Indigenous Resources, known as Campfire.
Elephants charged and trampled 12 others, including some villagers trying to protect their crops from the giant herbivores, who eat an average 300 kilograms (660 pounds) of fodder a day as adults, the group said in its annual report.
Still, before you cancel your travel plans, consider this report, and realize you're probably safer trying to push an elephant into a river in Zimbabwe than you are in our nation's capitol.
I'll take the crocodiles, just don't put me in those stupid shorts.
