TIL there are salt water crocodiles on Mexico's Pacific coast...

I know you have 'signs' but you need MORE. There needs to be a rope or a gate to close off the beach at night, it is not safe at all

I don't think the crocodiles are going to pay much attention to the rope.

Wait, what's a crocodile doing IN MEXICO?

That's the wrong country, the wrong continent, and the wrong ocean ffs!

Nobody expects crocodiles IN MEXICO!

There are critters that live in water that may want to eat you.  Seems simple to me.  Don't go in the water.

S'not only water. All kinds of fluids conceal predators.

Swimming in the ocean around midnight...  What's the worst that could happen?

Glad the kid is alive and okay. However, there's a shiatload of wrong choices going on here in this story. Not sure what would make a person think it's safe to swim at night in the open ocean when that is prime hunting time for predators.

Thanks, Interesting link!

The species was redescribed as Crocodylus FloridAnus by William Temple Hornaday in 1875

I, uh, might have altered the capitalization there. Just a little.

/Florid Anus

Maybe they misidentified? Not everyone knows the difference. An alligator will see you later and a crocodile will see you in a while.

Wait a second! When my family went camping on the beach when I was a kid, my parents encouraged to go late night swimming because that's when all the dangerous sea creatures were asleep. This explains a lot.

Oh gosh, where do I begin? First, where the hell were her dumb ass parents.
Second she was what, twelve. Dumbass twelve. ]
Third, Miss Junior Miss, that is why those damn resorts have swimming pools. So your dumbass unsupervised dumbass twelve year old self does not take her dumbass butt into the dark ocean at night.

Listen pal, if you regularly confuse 12 and 18  you should just stay inside. -_o

The young lady was 18, let's go easy on her. I'm a guy, when I was 18 I was so full of booze and drugs that I would have been too wasted to even walk to the water.

FTA: An unsubstantiated report of Hummel's injuries came from a one-star Trip Advisor review of the hotel posted last week by a guest named Natalie A. "I would've highly recommended this hotel.. however and this is a HUGE however, the only deterring factor for my not recommending to others is the fact that my group of friends RESCUED a young girl from a 12 ft+ CROCODILE," the posting said.

After a crocodile attacked her during a midnight swim in the dark, she punished the hotel with a 1-star review.

It seems the bad judgement calls were not an isolated incident.

In case you don't know, there is an easy way to tell the difference between and alligator and a crocodile.
One will see you later, the other will see you in a while.

The family asked the doctor how long it would be before she was recovered. He told them, "After a while."
 
2021-07-28 11:51:12 AM  
I've stayed at that exact resort and there were signs all along the beach warning of crocs.
