Young Girl Battling With Crocodiles, 1932

Meet a mermaid who thinks nothing of battling with crocodiles - bare handed!

The man standing behind a fence around the crocodile enclosure. A woman stands beside him. He points out a particular specimen he wants to train. The girl (now in a swimsuit) wades into the pool asking "which one dad?" She grabs the croc and there is a bit of a fight. Various shots of her grappling with the croc. She lifts the crocodile out of the pool saying "Boy, is he heavy!".
