I’ve always been a fan of salt water crocodiles because of their resilience, their brute strength, their gentile ways with their lovers and their nobility and command for respect with in the animal kingdom. Reptiles in general are a passion of mine. I’ve always identified with things people don’t understand/are afraid of, and in my search to figure out where I belong, I care for things that are misunderstood in the world and do my best to educate others on a different perspective. The ‘take no prisoners’ comes from something my mother once told me, when I felt down and out. she told me once I am ‘kind but take no prisoners.’ I took this to mean I am much like crocodiles when something threatens their land, family, or themselves.
