The crocodiles were designed to look particularly vicious and were meant to originally track an explorer, walking up and dow, turning around and each crocodile tried to snap at him. This proved to be too difficult to do, so I settled for a few ducks that are just out of reach of the crocodiles. Gear wheels made out of Wenge wood and brass.
