What crocodile fat is good for...

A Zambian crocodile farmer contacted me this week because he regularly has demands for crocodile fat for medicinal purposes. Perhaps this may interest you as well…
Indeed, many cultures seek
crocodile oil or fat for medicinal use. In Madagascar crocodile oil is prescribed for a wide variety of complaints, including burns, skin ulcers, and cancer. Crocodile fat is important in Asian medicines for treatment of asthma. Similar uses have been reported in South America and in the Caribbean islands of the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
Crocodile fat (oil) was even used to anoint the Pharaohs of ancient times. By being anointed the new Pharaoh would attain the fortitude of the holy crocodile or Messeh, (Messiah-The Anointed One).
