Rare crocodiles hatch in cardamoms

Conservation NGO Fauna and Flora International (FFI) announced Thursday that 13 baby Siamese crocodiles were hatched in the Cardamom Mountains last week. Sam Han, a national field coordinator for FFI, said researchers initially found 22 eggs of the critically endangered reptile in a nest in the Areng Valley in Koh Kong province. “We are very happy because we try our best to protect this endangered animal, because they are rarely found in other countries,” he said. “There are only around 2,000 Siamese crocodiles left in the wild in Cambodia.”
