The crocs in Kranji Reservoirs has been spotted by many avid anglers and bird photographers, just don't go near them and we'll be fine. Anglers have to take an extra look out because you're always near the bank, but then again the crocs are usually at where you shouldn't be fishing at. ;)

I hope nobody disturb the crocs though, it's part of our natural heritage and we don't wish to see them being removed by the authority because someone gets hurt getting too close or trying to hook the crocodile.

but i don't think our land is big enough to cater such animal. it is too dangerous with them lurking around. that size look capable of capsizing a sampan effortlessly.
