Crocodile Man also known as KRAITHONG – Was made famous by a Thai Novel, and later a film.

Kraithong is the warrior who rescues 2 beautiful girls from the mean crocodile named “Shalawan” .

Shalawan kidnapped 2 girls and keep them in an underwater cave. Many tried, but no one could defeat Shalawan, until Kraithong.

Crocodile wrestling was formed from this story, even the costumes they ware are in remembrance of Kraithong.
But here, this is an amazing show between REAL humen and REAL crocodiles.
