THE UK’s first crocodile zoo could be built in West Oxfordshire.
Shaun Foggett — who keeps 24 crocodiles and alligators, which grow up to 4m long, at his Witney home — is looking to buy enough land to fulfil his dream.
He has set up website crocodilesoftheworld.co.uk to help with his search.
The 30-year-old joiner has been saving for the past two years, and has secured much of the £100,000 start-up-costs.
Mr Foggett said: “I have got the largest collection of crocodiles in the UK.
The crocodile zoo will be the first in the country, there is nothing else in the UK like it.
“Most places just carry one species of crocodile as they are not set up to handle anymore.”
He needs about 5,000 sqft, or more, to set up the enclosures, which will house three of the rarest crocodiles in the world. He said: “I have written to quite a lot of farmers and some of the bigger estates in and around the Witney area.
“Lots of people have been interested, but with not enough room.”
... Thats because they're not fucking retarded Mr. Fogget ...
If you've ever been to England, then you know the houses aren't the biggest places there, unless your first name is Queen, Duke, Prince, or some other royalty.
The fact that this guy has willingly placed 24 Crocodiles in his home can really only mean one of two things:
-1- The Crocs have mind control over him
-2- He's fucking retarded.
At Least his offspring have shown some sense ...
Mr Foggett lives with fiancee Lisa Green, 29, and children Billy, six, Louie, four, and eight-month-old Shania.
He keeps his unusual pets in outbuildings in the garden of his home in Bibury Close.
He said: “To be honest, the crocodiles have always been around since before the children were born, so it’s very normal to them.
“They show a bit of interest, but there is not a lot they can help me with because of the nature of the animals.
... And thats because they want to live to see 12 ... except for the 8 month old, who's just hoping to make it to her next breast feeding.
Fogget finishes this article out with a gem ...
“It’s also about educating people. People think these animals lie in rivers waiting to attack the next human walking past, but there is a lot more to them.”
Thats right Foggett ... you forgot to mention the lakes, ponds, streams, closets, and bathtubs that they wait in as well.
