Dimitri Vassiliev says : "If your crew of four people were to walk into a hut now, and the crocodile saw it, and then only three of you walked out, it would realize that one person still remains inside. In any event, recognition does not affect their goodwill. They can bite anyone at any time.' It turns out that it is virtually impossible to tell what mood a crocodile is in just from looking at it. 'From the outside, you will not figure anything out,' Vasilyev explains. 'Most of the time, a crocodile remains motionless. It is in its nature to not make any movements while hunting. They don't even appear to breathe or blink. If they move an eyelid, they can kiss their lunch goodbye. Crocodiles don't show any emotions, even when they are seriously ill. Except that they stop eating. That said, even when healthy they can go through a whole winter without eating.' This is why when Vasilyev enters the terrarium that holds his patients, he wears what could be described as a knight's armor, except that instead of a shield he has a thick piece of plywood and, instead of a lance, a broom. Brooms have to be replaced frequently since after a while all that is left of them are stumps of wood. 'My whole experience of operating on and treating crocodiles has been nerve-racking. It's not something that I look back on fondly.' Many years ago, one patients bit off one of his fingers. Luckily, the finger was promptly sewn back on, and to an untrained eye the hand bears no visible signs of the accident. From Berlin with victory. We admit to Vasilyev that the main purpose of our visit is to meet a Mississippi alligator named Saturn that, rumor has it, was Hitler's favorite crocodile. At the same time, we hope to put to rest once and for all whether this story is true or just an urban legend. Vasilyev leads us to the crocodile. Unexpectedly, he invites our photographer to enter the terrarium, albeit with one caveat. 'Provided you do not get close to him, Saturn presents no danger. He is old and not as quick as he used to be. There are no documents on this, but he is definitely in his late 80s. The oldest crocodile of this species lived to 104, but that's the record.' It turns out that until recently Saturn had gone nearly a year without eating, and the zoo staff had already emotionally prepared themselves to bid him farewell. 'At first, we took his blood samples,' Vasilyev recalls, 'analyzed them, tried to inject him with vitamins (in order to give Saturn an injection, it is necessary to drain his pool, drive him up the stairs and tie him up), but then we decided that old age is an ailment that has no cure, and left him in peace. Nevertheless, he recently began to eat again (in the wild, alligators usually eat shellfish, and at the zoo usually fish, hardly ever hunting big game). It looks like death retreated for a while. That said, it may well be that you are the last people to film him alive.' Vasilyev is categorical about Saturn's alleged Nazi past, insisting that the crocodile was not 'Hitler's pet,' although it is almost certain that they met. From around the mid-1920s, Saturn lived in the Berlin Zoo, which Hitler, who is known to have loved of animals, visited on more than one occasion. In 1945, during the Battle of Berlin, the zoo was almost completely destroyed in bombing, but the crocodile miraculously survived. At first, he ended up with the Brits since the zoo was in the British sector in the western part of the city. A year later, in 1946, they gave him over to the Soviet Union as a gift. 'I am not sure what that gift was supposed to symbolize," External link
