    As long as you keep the crocs full and don't piss em off, there's no reason they'd bother people. And by giving them a constant supply of fresh chicken, they're pretty much set. After all, Crocs are a very lazy predator.

    Nile crocodiles are definitely adorable, alright.

    Like this little cutie.

    Outside...

    Inside! (P.S. Not for the squeamish)

    Definitely adorable creatures with an ingrained prehistoric predilection to eat anything that moves ;) . It's not a whole lot more crazy than the people who run with the bulls, really, but you wont catch me doing either of them, eheh.

    I'm sure a few people got nom'd in the time that village has been around. But that's going to happen with any meat eating animal as pets.

    No, crocodiles are lazy predators. They don't kill for fun, they kill cause they're hungry...or pissed. And as long as they have a constant supply of food, and you don't piss them off, they're not going to do much outside of lay around getting some sun. If you walk up to just any old Croc, yea, you'll most likely get chomped up. Either cause they're hungry or you're on their turf. But the same would happen if you walked up to a wild dog too.

    If by soon you mean "they've lasted over 600 years and still thriving" then sure, I'll go with that.

    Gator A- "So , which one are you going to eat later?"

    Gator B- "Probably that guy with the stick"

    Gator A - "oh yeah, I think I'll snack on those kids"

    Gator B- "cool, I'll eat their mom"

    Gator A-" Lets wait awhile first, since the idiots think were vegetarians"

    Well, if those cold blooded reptiles start acting up, I imagine the villagers will always have a source of suitcases if they want to leave.

    And some humans aren't? Maybe its the Croc's that are nuts.

    What do you think the tribes people are going to do when they run out of food.

    Cool. Crocodiles are really just like bees, in the sense that if you leave them alone, they'll leave you alone. Really effing big bees, but the point still stands. Also, they are not "mindless killing machines". If a croc catches a large enough animal, or gets enough food at one time, it won't have to eat for several weeks.
