Haiti - Social : Crocodiles in the flooded areas of Thomazeau
Crocodiles threaten people and livestock of the locality of Thomazeau (Northeast), flooded following the torrential rains that caused the overflow of Lake Azuéi [brackish pond].

According to a report of the Border Development Fund (FDF), published yesterday Monday, the situation is critical in this village, bordering with the Dominican Republic, because most homes are under water and that the saurians in search of food, can attack people and livestock. The teams of FDF are trying to find solutions to resolve the situation promptly.

Some witnesses report that crocodiles (1), some of large sizes, were seen in the flooded areas. Several residents have been evacuated, but many farmers prefer to remain on their land, despite the floods, by fear of theft and to defend with stakes, their cattle of the voracious appetite of the crocodiles, and this despite the danger and the warnings from the authorities.

The American crocodile (Crocodylus acutus) is a species that lives mainly in Central America, on the west coast of Mexico, northern South America and South Florida. This is a population of this species, which lives in the Lake Azuéi, between Haiti and the Dominican Republic. In 1984, the crocodile population was estimated at more than 400, since no study was made to update that number. Adult males have an average lenght of 5 meters and can reach 6 or 7 meters. They usually weigh between 400 to 500 kg. Individuals over 6 meters long can exceed one ton.
