About this book

Crocodiles, feared more than any other wild animal by the local inhabitants of Borneo, continue to exact a toll on human lives along the Batang Lupar and other rivers of Borneo. This is the story of Bujang Senang, the notorious man-eating crocodile of the Batang Lupar, Sarawak, who managed to give professional crocodile catchers the slip for many years.
