Description:The story is told by Nathaniel Bako, while Walter Koburu is asking questions towards the end of the recording. A crocodile born of a man and a woman thinks he is a human child, but when he tries to play with other children they get scared and throw stones at him. With a heavy heart, the crocodile decides to live the village and walks till he founds a place "far, far away", from which his village is no longer visible. Technically, that remote place is still on Blanga territory. The crocodile, a giant one now, dwells in the Garanga River and never attaks people who speak Blanga. However, he gets very nervous when hearing people speak other languages.
At that time, Radu was a PhD candidate
At that time, Bako was probably in his mid-fourties.
At that time, Walter was the Youth Secretary of the village. He is a younger brother of Chief Nason Haidu.
