This Is Why I Am Way Beyond Being An Atheist … I Do Not Believe In Any Religion.

IF I were to believe in a God or even a god I would expect better. Jeee, this guy is supposed to be doing God’s work. Never made sense to me … church buses crashing, pastors getting killed in church. This is why when I was about 18 I gave up on all religions. It was very easy for I.

Just the other day I posted about this Sri Lankan who is utterly devoted to God but God forsakes him more often than not!

Anywho … when I saw this crocodile story it did crack me up. I am sorry. I can’t help my perverse sense of humor.

Enough said …

Huge 17′ Crocodile Caught (& Conserved) In Sri Lanka.

I know that there are crocodiles in Sri Lanka. I had seen a few during my 14 years of living there. I even once saw a crocodile hunt — a crocodile, on a riverbank, being shot with a rifle.

I had also heard that the recent floods in Sri Lanka had resulted in some crocodiles getting swept over the banks of flooded rivers. Not sure whether this was one of these.

17 feet is big. But 3 feet below record length even for an Asian crocodile.

I had never heard of Thibbotuwawa. Couldn’t really find it. The best I could do was determine that it was in the Matale District. So, I marked that on a map for you (below). NOT where I would have expected to find a huge crocodile. Matale is in the area which we refer to as ‘Up Country‘ in that it is in the hilly, middle of the Island. Maybe some folks in Sri Lanka can help me out on this.
