In 1989, Chito found the crocodile on the shore of a river in Limon, with a shot in his left eye, and decided to save him. About ten years passed, when a worker of the Finca Las Tilapias saw Chito swimming by Pocho. In the year 2000, the extraordinary couple had became the biggest attraction of the small town of Siquirres, with their own show where you could see the crocodile winking, rolling and even opening his giant mouth to let Chito put his head in it.
Pocho, who was approaching 60 years old, died of natural causes on October the 16th, and was given a funeral and nice tribute by all the people in the little town of Siquirres.
Adios, Pocho! Thanks for the entertaining memories!
