A very kind fisherman rescues and saves a lizard’s life and they become great buddies for the next 22 years

We’ve seen all kinds of different relationships between individuals and wild creatures, but a person befriending a wild, big alligator seems a bit excessive.

Nevertheless, for this loving Costa Rican, all lives matter, so when he saw a seriously injured crocodile on the edge of a stream, he hurried to aid the helpless beast.

Gilberto “Chito” Shedden, a commercial fisherman and environmental fanatic from the town of Siquirres in Costa Rica’s Limón department, first saw Pacho, that crocodile, in 1989.

A livestock farmer once gravely damaged the 1200 pound lizard. Gilberto, on the other hand, was eager to nurse them back to full health, therefore, he seized the big beast.

For the previous six years or so, the compassionate fisherman looked after the hapless crocodile as if it were his own kid.

Pacho’s problems addressed substantially as a result of the love and warmth it received from its carer, and then when the moment came, Chito decided to publish it back into the environment.

Remarkably, the alligator just agreed to leave the guy who had treated it so well. They remained inseparable for the next 22 years after that.

In the 2000s, the couple achieved international acclaim when they appeared in the documentary ‘The Man Who Swims With Crocodiles.’

Chito has never been afraid of his friend, who could ever injure him. The gentle alligator died of natural causes on October 12th, 2011.

It is said to be over 60 years old. Its inspirational bond with the person who saved its existence, on the other hand, will last eternally.
