Now let's look at a rather unusual partnership. Chito and Pocho are a loving but odd couple who have hardly spent a day apart in the past 20 years.


Pocho refuses to leave Chito's side no matter what and Chito feels things would not be exactly right without Pocho.

The odd thing about this relationship is that Chito is a 52-year-old Costa Rican fisherman and Pocho a deadly 5.18 meter-long crocodile.

The fisherman made friends with the creature after finding him with a gunshot wound on the banks of the Parismina river.

He took him home and took care of him for months. And even after Pocho recovered, he didn't leave. Now the couple spend their time playing games and entertaining visitors.
