The Niger River floods rice paddies in Mali. The river—Africa’s third largest—flows nearly 2,600 miles (4,200 kilometers) from its source in Guinea through part of the Sahara to Nigeria’s coast, where it spills into the Atlantic Ocean.
The people in a village on the Niger River in Africa were losing fellow villagers at such a rapid rate, that they had to call in the Army to hunt down the culprit. A 22 foot, 2500 pound Crocodile. That would make the hairs of even Troy Landry’s neck stand up.
