Kathleen's Place: Cannibad, Samal

     Our last stopover in our field trip with the kindergarten students was at Kathleen's place in Cannibad, Samal.

It was the biggest crocodile you could see at the park wherein it is the only crocodile on its cage and situated near the entrance of the park. During my visit, I really spend a lot of time looking at Pangil. Since it was the day of cleaning its cage, I was amazed by the courage shown by the cleaners who went inside the cage while Pangil is watching them. It was thrilling to watch as well as heart pounding eveytime
