An old friend seeking a little love

There is an alien reptile lurking under a bench on the cliff path.

Dr Anina Lee, Chairperson of the Hermanus Cliff Path Management Group, says he has been there for years, unnoticed by most strollers. “He blended in with the vegetation and the plinth on which he rests, and lichens covering his body. Those few who noticed him thought it a bit of fun, even though he was seriously outside his natural habitat.

“Now, suddenly, he has turned bright green. His cover has been blown. His dignity has been dealt a serious blow. Everybody notices and comments, even on social media. This is not what an old crocodile wants to deal with – such public scrutiny. At his age he just wants to be left alone, scarcely noticed, to keep his vigil against anything untoward that occurs on the cliff path in the dead of night.”

Lee says the Cliff Path Management Group would like to appeal to the public to help the croc.

“We are looking for an artistic volunteer or two to restore his natural colour – and his self-esteem.

“If you love crocodiles and have the talent, contact the CPMG on hermanusciffpath@gmail.com so we can save the croc from further embarrassment.”
