Yes Jean, it is this good old crocodile that we find in the city of Nîmes everywhere.

Surely this one is extra special? He's a great looking statue!

The truths, we still have them! There are four suspended in the ceiling of the city hall. They are stuffed, naturally!

You certainly do! What fun! It reminded me of seeing crocodiles in my nightmare dreams and being underwater with them swimming above, do I stay submerged and drown or do I go for air and die in teeth.
That really is something extraordinary! Purely artistic.

Hi Bernard, this is the fellow you want for your team, you might not score any more goals, but put him in as sweeper and you want lose any. He may be red carded now and again, but Marseille is used with that happening, Cheers scally.

Thank you for your kind comments, Jean!
We don’t want him for Marseille Scally! This one is reserved for the local team of city of Nîmes. In more they have 11 as this one. They’re the crocodiles of Nîmes Olympique.
Greetings in both, Bernard

The crocodile is the emblem of the city of Nîmes because the Roman had returned it since Egypt. Here, there are crocodiles almost everywhere, in memory of the Roman.

Hello Bernard, that crocodile looks very much alive from. Well, that it's with a rope is tied:)))

Yes Christine, this crocodile is tied with a rope to a palm tree. It symbolizes the submission of Egypt in Rome at the time of the Romans. Some crocodiles have been reduced, from Egypt, by the Romans in the city of Nîmes. Today is the symbol of this city.
Greetings from the south of France

Nice picture, Bernard! He looks as alive! I also have a pic with the crocodile, but he is wooden! Cheers!
