Looks like a croc with a odd head (in shape and proportion) The head looks more like that of maybe a big monitor lizard or something (to me)There’s also these webbed skin ‘flaps’ behind the legs. What happened here? Is this ‘deliberate’ or just somebody’s screw-up? It’s about 27cm in length and the body is about 5cm wide. Please let me know what you think. Thanks and keep
    well..

    It is sweet.:) Well made, but by someone who had never seen a croc?
    Looks like it has some age too, nice wear on the soles of the feet.
    I take it you haven't been able to find any marks?
    I wonder if it could be Japanese.

    I don’t know. Maybe a Japanese dragon head then? (Linking to what AJ wondered?)

    Thanks for the comment. I was also thinking that is was of good quality and well made. The body itself is almost spot-on but that head.. With the body being so near ‘perfect’ I would think they should know what the head looks like.. Yes,unfortunately no marks. Japanese maybe? (I will do some
    more searching) Maybe a artist interpretation of some creature?

    Cuddly ? LOL.. ever since I learned that Salt water crocs were right on the other side from Cloud Nine, Siargao, Philippines where I have bodyboarded , and also in Palawan ( southern ) where I swear I saw drag marks in El Nido, Palawan (Northern), in a volcanic island lagoon that is land locked at high tide , I find them to be just nasty, creepy ...and this is from the 20 year firefighter and 2-1/2 year Animal Control officer who isn't easily creeped out ... I also am not a fan of snakes .... but I do like that bronze , I will admit...
