A mother of one named Vicki Lowing, 52 from Victoria, Australia is a remarkable woman and a true animal enthusiast with a strong passion especially for her pets.
In the year 1996 an anonymous person left a baby crocodile in a bad condition on Vicki’s doorstep. Since that day on for more than 14 years Vicki has taken care of her pet crocodile named Johnie. He’s entirely domesticated and even enjoys playing around with Vicki’s son Andrew.
Although Vicki was married to her husband Greg who was supportive of her animal loving side, the couple got divorced in 2005. The separation was lengthy and pretty harsh according to Vicki but it was worth it. It turns out her husband Greg gave her an ultimatum. It was either him or the pet croc Johnie. Vicki had no hesitation when she chose her beloved crocodile she has been taking care of all those years, even before she met Greg.
For her the reptile is just like her firstborn child and she could not stand giving him away. Recently, it was discovered that the crocodile which enjoys watching TV while sitting in Vicki’s lap was actually a girl hence its smaller size. Nevertheless, the family chose to keep the name since it’s what they are used to calling the pet croc.
