They hunted for Bujang Senang for days and finally killed it. From that day onwards, the predecessors of Bujang Senang are filled with hatred against the human race. Not sure if the legend is true BUT better be safe than sorry.

If you ever see any crocodile with white stripe on it’s back, better not provoke it. Heck, don’t even provoke any crocodile in your life, we’ve seen a lot of people hurt by crocodile because of their “stupidities.” Some of them even insert their head in between of the crocodile’s jaw!

Again, better be safe than sorry 🙂
