Cricket craze is common among youngsters. But here is Melrick Crasta who has an uncommon craze. This third year bio-chemistry student of St Aloysius College in Mangalore, is so crazy of lizards, frogs and snakes that he enjoys catching them.
He handles the little creatures he catches with great care. He holds them on his palms, feels them, tries to observe their behaviour when he holds them and then lets them free. His craze for lizards and frogs developed when he was in seventh standard, as he watched Discovery channel. Melrick has so far caught a worm snake, a rat snake and says the next on his list was to catch an Emerald Tree Python.
Anything can drive you crazy, But it’s lizards and frogs that drives this young man crazy. Isn’t it?
