Watch Out Sharks -- I'm a Crocodile

Crocodile Warning - Courtesy of Amada44 - Wikimedia CommonsNow exactly what do crocodiles and sharks have to do with each other? I just took a quiz and found out that I am an enterprising crocodile.

In learning more about crocodiles, I found that they will attack and even kill sharks. Crocodiles are no-nonsense and top predators. So watch out all you business sharks -- I'm a Crocodile!

How did I get started with all of this about crocodiles? I just finished reading  Stefan Swanepoel’s book titled Surviving Your Serengeti.  It is a fascinating book.

Through ActiveRain we were given the opportunity to download the first two chapters of the book. I was so interested that I immediately purchased and downloaded the entire Kindle edition of the book.

Swanepoel tells stories about the Serengeti to demonstrate useful skills for business and life. There is a quiz which you can take to determine which of the animals of the Serengeti that you resemble. I was surprised to be the enterprising crocodile. As I read more about the crocodile, I found myself very interested and liking the crocodile more and more.

Crocodiles can find unique solutions to difficult problems. They "think outside the box". And they are determined to succeed. I kept seeing characteristics that reminded me of myself. One similarity that was not in the book, is that we both like warm climates. After a cold winter in Wyoming, I'm looking forward to my unique future working referrals in Latin America with my copy of  Surviving Your Serengeti 7 Skills to Master Business and Life  available to help me in mastering my business and my life.

I would like to encourage you to download the first two chapters and take the quiz.

Gary - from one enterprising Croc to another - have a great weekend. Beside that, Crocs have been around for over 200 million years, outlasting the dinosour extinction. You just can't kill us and we are in very good company on AR!

Kristine, I hope you have a great weekend, too.  I did look up crocodiles on Wikipedia and they were far more fascinating than I had ever imagined.

Gary,

Great comment, it's getting late here and I thought at first the post was going to be about lawyers, but certainly not disappointed.

Don, Well, you just made me laugh. I guess with that title it could have been about lawyers. Anyway thank you and I'm glad that you weren't disappointed.

Peter & Linda, Thank you.  I had fun writing this post.  I'm certain that you will enjoy the book.  I hope you have a great weekend, too. 

Rebecca,  I couldn't wait so I bought a Kindle version on Amazon.  I also think the regular version will come out March 1. The chapter about the giraffe is a good one.

Gary, I watched a show about crocs where it talked about them attacking sharks. I certainly wouldn't want to meet one during a swim (nor would I want to meet a shark), but I'm pretty sure Pensacola Beach is safe from crocs...for now!

FYI, your "subscribe here" link in the blog doesn't seem to be working.

Trish,  I don't think either one would be my choice for swimming companions either. 

By the way, I fixed the link. Thanks for telling me about it.
