These crocs won't be joining any dinner tables anytime soon!
Chinese police rescued 3,500 crocodiles that were destined for menus in the Guangdong province.
These Siamese crocodiles were headed to southern China, where exotic dishes are a specialty. These crocodile are EXTREMELY endangered, and they are one of the most critically endangered reptiles in the world.
Hunting these crocs is illegal but a strong and persistent black market still dwindles the crocodile's numbers…
We're just thankful the police stepped in and saved so many of this species!
