This is nice documentation. I have seen mongoose eating up the eggs of various species, however I hadn't seen them digging up the crocodile eggs and eating those.

Infact, during the hatching time, mongoose and even storks and other birds of prey feast on the crocodile hatchlings.

Thanks for sharing.
