A smiling crocodile

There’s actually one more crocodile in the Hôtel de Ville, or the town house of Nîmes. If you find the four stuffed ones hanging from the ceiling, you will definitely notice this fellow as well.

It’s a work of the ateliers of Foyer d’accueil et de promotion Hubert-Pascal, and depicts a crocodile leaning on a toril… What’s a toril, you might ask. Well, look the second picture. Nîmes is famous for bullfights, too!
