Among such places is the mystical African Lake Funduji, located three hundred kilometers from the capital of South Africa, Pretoria.

For example, in 1954, Funduji crocodiles European alligator hunters became interested, especially as there were a lot of these valuable reptiles because of their skin, and they, like they say, they were still not scared.
A group of fishermen gathered on the shore of the reservoir and became shoot aiming at huge crocodiles. However, the bullets are like bounced off them without causing the slightest harm to alligators.
