On the flip side, having crocs around does control the snake population in the reservoirs . So like I said in another thread, we should reintroduce the Chinese alligator back to HK and let them populate our reservoirs. They are relatively small and timid, so it won't pose a life-threatening danger to humans. But they will sure eat some of the snakes around the reservoirs. .
Yes, a hare-brain scheme, but it's not as far-fetched as it sounds, the caimans (the South American version of the alligator) are known to make Brazilian reservoirs as their home.

Amazes me people talk about the 'perils' of trekking in HK. Unless you are very stupid it is perfectly safe.
How many died from it last year?
How many in the last 10 years?
How do these numbers compare to people walking around the city and dying because they got hit by a car/bus/minibus?
Once you put numbers in perspective, you will very quickly realize why its rubbish.
Lantau old quarry is an option for a fresh water dip. Or it used to be until the YMCA put fences up to stop people using the land.
I guess you mean Lamma, not Lantau.
