Seven-year-old Josh Geronimo held a baby Philippine crocodile (Crocodylus mindorensis) here on Saturday and exclaimed, “Oh, it smells good.” Geronimo, a Canadian citizen, said the crocodile did not emit any foul odor or reeked of fishy smell but he complained about the reptile’s scaly body, which he described as spiny. Geronimo was among the guests who witnessed the release of 12 baby Philippine crocodiles into the Dunoy Lake in Barangay (village) Dibuluan in this town in Isabela province on Saturday. Staff members of Mabuwaya Foundation, students from Isabela State University and Leiden University in The Netherlands, and representatives of Zoos Victoria in Australia also joined the event.
