    I think this may have been happening in a number of locations. My wife Pook told me this recently happened about a mile from our house in Thailand !I am out there in 4 weeks. I wonder how fast they travel ?

    I just told my wife I was going out for a bite. I've changed my mind now.

    On a serious note, a large number of crocs have escaped from the Crocodile farm in Pattaya. Some of them are huge ones too. I've just seen a couple of them recaptured, on the Thai TV news. Jeez, they were big.

    Lek said she thought the farm was near that Mini Siam place - is that the one?

    Its called "The Million Year Old Stone Park and Crocodile Farm" and is about 3kms from Siam Park. More into the countryside, away from Pattaya itself.

    Very close to where Phetchy lives. He's due back about now, I think.

    If its the Million Year Old Stone Park and Crocodile Farm they wont be hungry. Theres huge lazy carp and catfish there.

    I shall keep a lookout for large logs
    no, no, better not, I want to say, no, better not
    Quite a big place. Good for a day out (not for Dis though) got the croc shows, and croc meat to eat, monkey shows, tigers, big fish etc etc. Nt to expensive for the day and good with kids.
    Oh, nearly forgot; Its got some rocks that are a million years old
    Judging others before you have met isn't a wise option.

    I can't believe there are crocodiles roaming about. If they are not all recaptured by December 6th i aint going to Pattaya. Its just not worth the risk. I could be happily staggering along Beach Road at 4am and be eaten by a bloody crocodile. Unnaceptable.

    I've heard those who sit on Beach Road called a number of things but never crocodiles.
