Babiya - Harmless And Vegetarian Crocodile

Babiya Vegetarian Crocodile

Meet a harmless crocodile. A vegetarian in a carnivorous species "Babiya The Divine Crocodile". The guardian of Ananthapura Lake Temple in Kerala.

He eats rice and Jaggery for lunch which is fed to him directly into his mouth. 

This temple has been protected by crocodiles for the past 150 years. But only one crocodile is visible at any particular time. After the death of one, another appears on its own. Babiya has been around for the past 60 years considering there is no river or lake near by, this phenomenon is still a mystery.
